Cossart Gordon & Co. Bual Madeira 5 Years Old Medium Rich 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

This fine wine is made from the Bual grape which produces a medium rich style, perhaps the most versatile among Madeiras. It shows a hint of honey and raising on the palate with an underlying smoky complexity. The round and mellow Ten Years Bual has attractive fruit and a long creamy aftertaste. It makes an excellent cheese accompaniment.

By 1850 the firm was said to be shipping "half the growth of the Island" and Newton's contacts in America through his brother Andrew (who left Scotland for Virginia) were proving to be highly successful and the company acquired an unequalled reputation as suppliers of fine Madeiras.
