Cossart's house style is elegant with a bit more acid in the structure, and its trademark spiciness is evident in this wine's aroma, which displays a faint suggestion of cinnamon. Medium-sweet with a citrusy inflection, this is a fine sipping wine.
Madeira is a fortified wine named for an island off the North African coast near Portugal.
There are four styles of Madeira are named after the grape varieties used to make the wine. Sercial is the palest and driest style of Madeira. Verdelho is slightly sweeter. Bual is sweeter still and darker. Finally, Malmsey the sweetest of the four. The first two styles are usually made like sherry where the sugar is almost fully fermented before the brandy is added. The last two styles are closer to the way Port is made by interrupting the fermentation with grape spirit leaving residual sugar in the Madeira.
