Bual 1969

Grape Varieties: Bual
Bottling Year: 2004
Product Description: Cossart Gordon’s Vintage Bual 1969 is a single harvest Madeira. This wine was aged for 35 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.
Specification: Alcohol: 21% ABV pH: 3.42 Residual Sugar: 90.6 g/l Total Acidity: 8.8 g/l tartaric acid
Tasting Notes: Deep chestnut colour with golden reflections. Complex and intense, with a characteristic Madeira bouquet of dried fruits, toffee, wood and vanilla with notes of coffee and nuts. Medium sweet and smooth with a long and exuberant finish.
Press Comments:

“Mid-mahogany; singed nose, verging on the aromas of an autumnal bonfire; fine and focused, rich in concentration and texture, beautifully balanced by fresh steely acidity. A relative youngster that stands up well in this company.
