Winemaking Process: Cossart Gordon Good Company Full Rich is made using traditional winemaking methods that have been perfected over centuries in Madeira. Cossart Gordon Good Company underwent fermentation on the skins with natural yeast at between 24°C - 26°C in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. After approximately 48 hours fortification with grape brandy takes place, arresting fermentation at the desired degree of sweetness. The vinified juice was transferred to 'estufa' tanks where the wine underwent a cyclic heating and cooling process between 45°C and 50°C over a period of 3 months. After 'estufagem' the wine was aged for 3 years in American oak casks and then underwent racking and fining before the blend was assembled and bottled.
