A month or so ago a lovely little ‘cesto de vindima’ (vintage basket) came my way from the Madeira Wine Company with samples of four new wines being launched in 2021. These included an unusual Listrão from Blandy’s, the last cask from one of the last harvests at William Leacock’s vineyard at Porto Santo. It is the first time that I have tasted a wine from this grape, bottled with considerable age. It is a ‘must have’ for any serious Madeira collector as there will be no more. The 1978 Bual from Cossart Gordon is utterly magnificent.
