Winemaker's Notes:

Produced under the stringent rules of the Ri­as Baixas Denominacion de Origen (DO), Marti­n Codax Albarino is thoroughly food friendly, and designed to be consumed young. This is an aromatic wine, elegant, dry and crisp on the finish. 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. Albarino stands on its own as an aperitif but reaches its glory stage when matched with food. This is not only because of the firm acidity, but also because of the wine's mouth-engaging fullness. Seafood, poultry, light salads, and lightly-sauced pastas are only a few of the many possibilities.

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.
