“Following the canteiro process, this wine was aged in American oak casks for 14 years and in a cooler part of the chateau before being bottled in 2012. Lovely nutty and peat moss tones combine with shades of cantalope, and vanilla creme brûlée on the nose. The palate is vibrant and fresh, delivering slightly sweet flavors of quince, candied ginger, and salted Marcona almonds along with its toffee undertones. Fresh and rich, with great length, this beautiful wine will cellar well for at least another decade.”

"Bottled in 2016, the 2005 Colheita Bual is showing nicely, offering up aromas of sultanas, honeycomb, peach, mocha and figs. Medium to full-bodied, ample and charming, it's fleshy and textural, with an enveloping core of fruit that pulls up short of being too overtly grapey, underpinned by ripe but racy acids. Generous and gourmand, this is a demonstrative Bual that will make many friends."
About The Winery
Cossart, Gordon & Co. was established by Francis Newton, a young Scot, in 1745 and is the oldest company in the Madeira wine trade. By 1850, the firm was said to be shipping 'half the growth of the island' leading to the company acquiring an unequaled reputation as suppliers of fine Madeiras. In 1808, the Scottish dominance over the firm was broken with the arrival of William Cossart, an Irishman descended from a distinguished Huguenot family of France. The title of the firm eventually became known as the now world-famous Cossart, Gordon & Co. The Cossart family has remained among the most influential on the island for nearly two centuries.
