Winemaker's Notes:

Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow color, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling. Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of damp, dewy fresh herbs with a perfume of semi-ripe apples. A fine sparkling sensation on the palate, with a complexity of tastes denoting the freshness of vegetation in the valley and the essence of the varietal. Persistent, full-bodied and tasty...a classic.

About Bodegas Martin Codax:

The Martín Códax Winery was founded in 1986 by a group of winegrowers. Established in Cambados, the capital of the Salnés Valley, the winery has become a point of reference within the "Rías Baixas" Denomination of Origin in Spain.

The Albariño grapes Bodegas Martin Codax uses for its wines come from its own vineyards, and thus the high quality and purity of the fruit is guaranteed.

Meticulous production methods combine the most advanced viticultural techniques (soil analysis, phytographic hygiene testing, progress control of the different stages of grape development...), with the most traditional know-how regarding vine growing and harvesting conditions.
