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 Albariño displays intense floral aromas and an attractive acidity,

This is a great buy. At 90 pts it is well-deserved. It has great body for a white (not in wood), tropical fruit and lemon with mineral and chalky undertones. Think viogner + sauvignon blanc = albarino. Spain, Galicia region, Rias Baixas sub-region, Burgans (name of the slope) in the Salnes valley. NW coast of Spain, cool sub-region
Excellent with spicy Chinese food. Dry fruit with clean aromatic finish.
Light and crisp, slight citrus notes.Good with chocolate
Crisp, clean summer white. Reminds me a bit of Pomelo

Wine & Spirits(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.
