Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2006 Burgans Albarino a custom cuvee chosen by importer Eric Solomon is a candidate for Best Buy in the Albarino category. Medium gold-colored the wine has excellent honey mineral orange marmalade and peach aromas and flavors in a just off-dry format. Drink it over the next 12-18 months with grilled salmon tuna and roast chicken. [89 pts Robert Parker]

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."

Albarino is a must for any white wine lover. This 90 point example is a good start.

Soft and round, with bright tropical fruit and a nutty minerality. 100% Albariño from Galicia's Rías Baixas zone, this aromatic white wine is named for a hill called Burgans, which overlooks the Atlantic.
