La Báscula

La Báscula

Báscula in Spanish means either a weighbridge for lorries or an old fashioned weight scales. Bruce Jack, founder of Flagstone, and today, owner of his new highly successful SA range, Bruce Jack Wines and hispanophile Ed Adams MW decided on a label design they went for the latter rather than the former to represent balance in their carefully crafted wines from all over Spain. Good wines are all about balance in the vineyard, the balance between various components in the wine and in the case of Báscula the balance between Old and New World.

SPAIN

What happens when you take a Master of Wine and a multi-award winning South African winemaker and put them together….

The wines in the range have intrinsic balance; there is a balance between indigenous Spanish varieties and modern winemaking and with the label design there is a balance between New World dynamism and a more traditional gentility represented by the Alhambra motifs found on the label and capsule.

Viticulture

The philosophy is small volumes and really high quality; also the lead varietal or varietals in all the wines are always native Spanish grapes which is very important for typicity and integrity. We believe all the wines represent excellent value for money and really show off the areas they come from.

Winemaking

We have made small but significant changes in the winemaking and handling as well as introducing our own excellent American barrels from Barrel Associates, California, the same barrels Bruce’s Flagstone winery uses in South Africa. The result is fine, ripe, concentrated wines without some the dryness on the finish that is sometimes evident even in top Spanish offerings.
