Martín Códax is a winery that was founded by a group of Spanish winemarkers in 1986. It is in the capital of the Salnés Valley, Cambados, in the Denomination of Origin "Rías Baixas" of Spain.
Wonderful mouthfeel. Nice sweet character with nuances of apple. Well structured wine.
Study in acid. Spicy, with a fruit linger. Extremely crisp and clean
89 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Light, bright yellow. Lively lemon and lime aromas are complemented by melon, pear and salty minerals. Juicy and focused, offering brisk citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a late note of smoky herbs. Gains sweetness with air and finishes with an appealing note of fresh pineapple. I like this wine's blend of sweetness and cut."
