Product Description:

Cossart Gordon’s Vintage Bual 1962 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 53 years in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the casks were gradually transferred from the top floors of the lodge, where it is naturally warmer, to the middle floors and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine was regularly racked and when it reached the desired stage of maturity it was bottled. Only 1,104 bottles of this wine were released.

Tasting Notes:

Crafted by Francisco Albuquerque, the Bual 1962 is the perfect example of a world class vintage Madeira. Visually, it's dark amber colour, with golden hue, greenish rim, and the magnificent slow teardrop, are warm and embracing, calling us to sit down and enjoy. Dense and concentrated, this vintage has the typical bouquet of old Madeira's. Exuberant on the nose, its bouquet is extremely complex, with noticeable balsamic notes, cedar wood, cigar box, spices, dark chocolate, caramelized orange peel, dried passion fruit, roasted nuts and old brandy. The mouth feel is wonderfully rich, yet vibrantly fresh. Extremely concentrated, and complex, this wine has noticeable notes of spices and resin. The aftertaste is long and lingering, making it a meditation wine.

Just delicious. This wine has an elasticity to its tannins that makes it as texturally fascinating as it is rich in flavor. It glows with an inner warmth, emanating flavors of wildflower honey, strawberries, golden citrus, toast and cream, and buzzes with energy, giving no hint that it is a 50-year-old wine. Compellingly drinkable on its own, it could also pair with a range of foods, starting with a shrimp and lobster bisque.
