Albariño Organistrum Fermentado En Barrica Bodegas Martin Codax Pontevedra/España 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant, medium intense ruby red color. Decadent aromas of ripe fruit and a floral bouquet that is integrated with nuances of cedar and toasty oak. This is a modern-style Rioja, exhibiting dark, robust, plush fruit and agreeable tannins. The 2008 Ergo Tempranillo has lots of body and structure, as well as multiple layers of fruit.

nose of light sea water made me think of how awesome it would pair with broiled scallops. I had it with beer battered cod filets. the mouthfeel is nice and oily with lots of tart acid. i get lemons and lemon peel for days. just a gorgeous wine by itself or with fish. prototypical albarino. this may even age for a year due to the acid, but i recco drinking it ASAP.

I agree with the comment about the "sea-water" nose. Only medium acid, but still crisp because of the full body and slight citrus flavors. Drank this with pesto/tomato/parmesan crostini...good, but would be even better with grilled seafood (would not be a good match with a creamy sauce.)

What a very good value this wine is. The nose reminds me of honey Greek yogurt with melon and pear. It is very inviting. The mouthfeel is pleasant with moderate acidity and a lasting flavor of pear, honey, and spice. Read more about this wine and see additional wine reviews at: www.winedinewith.us. - 04/12/2010

The label mentions "fruit forward" and its dead on... lots of plum and berry flavor, with a hint of spice, much juicier than what I normally expect from a rioja.... but in a good, pleasing way. Very enjoyable wine and a solid value.

Martin Codax Ergo Tempranillo Rioja 2008 750ML


External Review
07/19/2009

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.

Spain's aromatic white Albariño grape flourishes in the northwestern province of Galicia, and nowhere are the results as impressive as in the Rías Baixas region. Delightfully crisp, vibrant, and floral, this seafood-friendly wine has lively fruit character with a flinty, minerally edge.

Coming from 80-year-old vines grown on the hillsides of Bierzo in northeastern Spain, this wine sees only two months of oak and possesses many layers of flavor and complexity. We tasted black plum and cherry notes, hints of tobacco, and a touch of bittersweet chocolate.

"Ergo" is inspired by the Ebro River which carves its way through the terrain of Rioja. "Ergo" portrays a comtemporary expression of the classic Spanish grape Tempranillo; with distinct fruit forward flavors of fresh berry and plums, layered with hints of spice. "Ergo" complements a wide variety of foods from roasted meats to grilled vegetables. - Winery

Martin Códax has created this easy-drinking, fruit forward wine from Rioja. Made from 100% Tempranillo, this wine is the perfect match from everything from summer pasta salads to burgers.

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