Cossart Gordon 10-year Bual Madeira

SKU #1045328

This 10-year Cossart Gordon is a single-varietal Bual bottling that was aged in Madeira's traditional "estufagem" process. The just-made fortified wine is placed in casks in the highest and hottest loft of their lodge in Funchal. Over the course of the 10-year ageing process, the casks are bought down to progressively cooler middle and then lower floors of the lodge as the wine stabilizes. The producer describes: "Clear, amber colour with tinges of gold and very strong legs; a bouquet of prunes, almond, vanilla, wood and toffee with a smooth, medium-sweet finish and an excellent balance between the fruit and acidity." The best part of investing in a bottle of good Madeira is that it lasts for several months in the refrigerator after opening, so even an occasional half glass when the mood strikes is possible. Try pairing it with hard cheeses, milk chocolate, fruit, or tea cakes for an elegant Old World delight.

Country:

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.
