Tasting Notes:
Medium tawny/gold colour. Seems a bit flabby and displaying too much flat oxidation at first, and a teacake fruitiness only emerges reluctantly. The palate has a biscuity richness and quite a thick texture, with plenty of sweetness. There's a lot of warmth and a Demerara sugar depth and toffeed sweetness here, but the grapefruity acidity is tangy and precise into the finish.

Food Pairing:
Delicious with desserts. Can be served with fruits, especially pineapple, fruit salad, rich cakes, strong cheeses or chocolate. Also good with coffee as a digestive.

86 points - Cossart Gordon Vintage Verdelho 1975

The 1975 Verdelho is missing a little clarity on the nose, with touches of hot buttered toast, spice and dried orange peel. It appears rustic at the moment. The palate is better with a rounded, viscous entry that is matched by piercing acidity. It is not a particularly complicated Verdelho, but it is harmonious, light on its feet and focused with a light honeyed, resinous finish that exhibits a little distracting volatility.
