1997 Cossart Gordon Bual Colheita Madeira (500ml)

SKU #1143404

Cossart Gordon, founded in 1759, is a Bual specialist, only bottling Madeiras from this noble grape variety known for producing slightly spicy and medium sweet styles of Madeira. This Colheita ramps up the complexity from the 10 year bottling, showing the rich candied flavors and bright acidity, but also more spice and earthy traits, with hints of mocha towards the finish. It is clearly a wine of more individuality, expressing the slightly older age and fact that it has been aged as a vintage specific "Colheita" as opposed to a blended wine. Gordon's 1995 scored a 93 with Wine Enthusiast, Editors' Choice. (12/15/2008)

Portugal

- Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe's fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world's finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country's best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and Dão area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds. Click for a list of bestselling items from Portugal.
