Cossart Gordon’s Vintage Bual 1987 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 29 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. 

Tasting Notes:

Topaz colour with glints of gold. Rich, smooth texture, a characteristic bouquet of toffee, wood and vanilla with notes of spices and dried fruits. Fine and focussed, with good balance and a long spicy aftertaste.

Bottled in 2016, Cossart Gordon's 1987 Bual is showing well, opening in the glass with aromas of orange rind, preserved lemon, figs and warm spices, as well as subtle hints of praline and mocha, a touch of volatility dissipating in the decanter. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, it's a fine-boned, elegant wine that is built around a spine of tangy acidity and concludes with a penetrating, nicely defined finish. This 1987 fleshes out considerably with 24 hours of aeration, so planning ahead when opening bottles is recommended.
