(2008 Vintage) An excellent co-operative established in 1968 with over 550 members. These members have 420 hectares of vineyard, primarily in the Salnés Valley in Rias Baixas. Martín Códax wine pays homage to the troubadour of the same name who lived in this region in the 13th century. It is said that he was born and lived in Galicia. His songs exalted the beauty of women, gallant love and wine. Albariño is the white grape variety of note from Spain with a style very similar to Viognier. It offers a delicate yet forceful peachy aroma on the nose and palate and is a great choice if you prefer something a little different read more...to Chardonnay. Vivid straw-yellow green in colour with a touch of ripe lemon, on the nose this wine is intense, aromatic and elegant with aromas of fresh herbs, green apples, citric fruits and grapefruit. On the palate it is persistent, round, full-bodied and fresh. (hide)

Wine & Spirits(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.
