Cossart Gordon & Co. Sercial Madeira 1988

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A very fine nose with chocolate, orange, quince and almond all woven together with nuanced notes of agave, sea air and some camphor. Lovely richness, round and sweet for sercial with some cocoa and light caramel tones that frame the lemon/lime core of fruit that is just a touch peachy. A long, caramel tinged finish. 93pts

Thomas Murdoch joined the firm in 1791 that came to be called Newton, Gordon, Murcoch & Co. 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.
