?Although quite small, Portugal produces a great variety of wines ranging from light and fizzy Vinho Verde to hearty and tannic Port. Portugal is Europe’s fourth-largest wine-producing region, and has been exporting its wine since the 14th century. The Douro Valley of Portugal is the original and current home for the world’s finest Port. The valley spans from east of the city of Oporto all the way to the border of Spain and is the country’s best known wine region. Lesser-appreciated DOCs like Bairrada and D?o area also emerging for their fine, rustic reds.

Cossart Gordon 5 year old Bual underwent fermentation off the skins with natural yeast at between 65?F-70?F in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 3 days, fortification with grape brandy takes place, which arrests the fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. Producer note: "Clear, amber colour with tinges of gold; a bouquet of dried fruit, vanilla, wood and toffee with a smooth, medium-sweet finish and an excellent balance between the fruit and acidity."
