Wine Details







Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Produced under the stringent rules of DO Rías Baixas, Martín Códax Albariño—aromatic, elegant, dry, and crisp on the finish—is thoroughly food-friendly, and designed to be consumed young. The key aromatic and flavor notes are pear, passion fruit, and apple. Acidity is bright and integrates well with aromatic elements into a balanced whole. Albariño, with its firm acidity and full mouth-feel, stands on its own as an aperitif but reaches its full glory when matched with food.

    (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.
