Cossart Gordon 10 Year Bual Madiera Medium Rich NV

$ 46.00

Producer Notes: Made from Bual grapes collected from multiple small, terraced vineyards that cling to the steep mountainous slopes of the island, this is a dry Madeira.  The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks until a neutral grape spirit brandy is added to stop the fermentation.  Following fermentation, the wines undergo the 'canteiro' process used for fine Madeiras.  They are placed in a lodge in American oak casks and heated solely by the sun's warmth for three months.  This heating process oxidized the wine, giving it a very long shelf life and its characteristic nutty, rich flavors.  

Madeira does not need to be decanted and may be served chilled as an aperitif or as a dessert wine. Serve in classic port glasses or 8oz. tasting glass~ avoid using small cordial glassware as it will limit the aromas.

Pairing: excellent with drier, salty cheeses such as Aged Gouda or creamy desserts.
