Vivid straw-yellow green colour with a touch of ripe lemon. Bright and slightly sparkling.
Intense and elegant aroma with hints of fresh herbs, green apples, citric fruits and grapefruit.
It is persistent, rounded and full-bodied, with a light petillance that gives the wine an impressive and vivacious sense of freshness.
Martin Codax Albarino is a bright, fine citrine-yellow color with a star-bright core going out into a faint yellow to glass-clear rim definition and medium-high viscosity.
The aromatics of this wine are like nothing else in the world of white wines. It is intense and pungent with crushed Japanese gooseberries, also known as physalis, then pear sparkler, apple cider, pomelo fruit segments, water chestnuts, Key lime pie made with kaffir limes, tangerine rind and oodles of fresh minerality.
This explosively delicious white wine coats the palate with a plethora of interesting white fruit characteristics, including, but not limited to citrus rind, lemon drops, Granny Smith apples, white peach skins, apricot jam, honeysuckle and zesty minerals. The flavor comes through because the wine has no oak to interfere with the pure fruit and delineation in the bottle.
Albarino is the most expensive grape varietal in Spain and is considered quite noble there. This is a sensational white wine that could turn a red wine drinker onto whites. Martin Codax Albarino is much better, crisper and fresher than 99 percent of all white wines in the market. It is perfect for a late summer party or dinner. Try it by the glass or with spicy Thai food or grilled halibut.
|Bodegas Martin Codax was founded in 1986 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language, are preserved. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love and to the sea of our coastline.
Since itís founding, Bodegas Martin Codax has grown and developed; always supporting its people, its land and its culture. The culture is promoted in more than 40 countries over the world.
A project that started with the dream and efforts of a group of winegrowers is now a reality and it is this reality which has let Bodegas Martin Codax become a symbol of Galician wines inside or outside of our borders/country.
