The Cossart Gordon Colheita 2005 Bual Madeira is a rare and exceptional wine, a single harvest treasure bottled in a smaller 500ml format. This exquisite Madeira boasts not only a prestigious heritage but also a complex flavour profile, making it a true connoisseur's delight.

A Storied Lineage: The Legacy of Cossart Gordon

Cossart Gordon is a renowned name in the world of Madeira, with a history dating back to the 17th century. The company is credited with playing a pivotal role in shaping the style and reputation of Madeira wines. Their Colheita Bual expressions are particularly sought-after, representing single harvests aged for extended periods in cask to achieve remarkable depth and character.

Tasting Profile: A Symphony of Richness and Refinement

The Cossart Gordon Colheita 2005 Bual Madeira unfolds in the glass with a captivating amber hue, hinting at the years spent maturing in cask. On the nose, a captivating bouquet emerges, teeming with aromas of dried fruits like sultanas, figs, and apricots. These are beautifully intertwined with notes of honey, caramel, and a touch of mocha, hinting at the influence of oak ageing. Hints of spice and citrus peel add a touch of complexity, creating a truly inviting aroma.

The first sip reveals a wine of exquisite balance. The sweetness is luscious yet beautifully counterpointed by a refreshing acidity that cuts through the richness. The flavours echo the aromas, with a melange of dried fruits, honey, and caramel complimented by subtle oaky notes and a hint of spice. The texture is smooth and creamy, with a lingering finish that leaves a lasting impression on the palate.

Food Pairing: A Match Made in Dessert Heaven

The Cossart Gordon Colheita 2005 Bual Madeira is a dessert wine par excellence. Its rich sweetness and complex flavours make it a perfect partner for a variety of sweet treats. Here are some delectable food pairings to elevate your enjoyment:

  • Blue Cheese: The richness of the Bual cuts through the creaminess of blue cheese, creating a delightful harmony of flavours. Stilton or Roquefort are excellent choices.
  • Fruit Crumbles and Pies: The wine's sweetness complements the fruitiness of crumbles and pies. Apple, pear, or berry crumbles would be a fantastic match.
  • Chocolate: The Bual's notes of mocha and caramel create a natural synergy with chocolate desserts. Try it with a decadent dark chocolate ganache or a rich chocolate tart.
  • Nut-based Desserts: The wine's richness pairs beautifully with the nutty character of desserts like pecan pie or baklava.
  • Foie Gras: The sweetness of the Bual can counterbalance the richness of foie gras, creating an interesting and luxurious combination.

Beyond the Dessert Plate: Unexpected Pairings

While the Cossart Gordon Colheita 2005 Bual Madeira shines as a dessert wine, its versatility allows for some innovative pairings. Consider trying it with:

  • Strong Cheeses: The wine's sweetness can tame the sharpness of strong cheeses like aged cheddar or Gouda.
  • Spicy Dishes: The Bual's acidity can help cut through the heat of spicy curries or Szechuan cuisine.
