Wine Description

A classic albariƱo, this velvety wine is almost slick on the palate, smooth and serious but with a refreshing and perfectly balanced level of acidity, and intensely aromatic.

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2011 Vintage) The Martin Codax 2011 Rias Baixas Albarino is delicate and medium-bodied with a crisp, dry finish. Flavors of ripe apple, peach, pear and lemon zest are framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. This AlbariƱo displays intense floral aromas and an attractive acidity

    (From 2010 Vintage) An explosively exotic nose of dried apricots, ripe peaches, and honeysuckle is followed by a medium-bodied wine with delicious fruit and purity. Completely tank-fermented and aged, this is Spainrsquo;s answer to Francersquo;s exotic, honeyed wines from Cordrieu. Sadly, the 1998 vintage produced an extremely small crop because of spring frosts. This offering, the ideal Spanish aperitif, or a wine to serve with a multitude of seafood dishes, should be consumed during its first year because of its fragile perfume.
