Albariño Marieta Rias Baixas 2013

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine for £9.50 from a shop in London [www.oddbins.com ]. Albarino is a white wine grape grown in Galicia [north-west Spain] and northern Portugal. It has a thick skin to withstand the damp climate oif this area. Some think it is related to reisling and was brought here by 12th century monks while others think it is related to petit mansang. Rias Baixas consists of two provinces of Galicia which got DOC status in 1988. My bottle was made by Bodegas Martin Codax and their Marieta cuvee is advertised as the first semi-dry Albarino.I started my bottle last night with my supper of smoked fish and I did enjoy it.It is neither dry nor sweet.There is a peach,melon and apple style fruit there and a hint of citrus but the first impression is of a tingling sensation on the tip of the tongue,almost as if this were a sparkling wine.It is an unusual wine but it went well with the fish
