Food Pairings for Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas
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.)
Tropical flavors in slightly sweet well balanced wine. Nice
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

Wonderful wine, easy drinking for anyone. I usually suggest this to a customer who may like chardonnay, or pinot grigio. Great wine for the price. If your looking for something different this could be your answer.
A good hot weather wine, this would pairs well with mussels, clams, or similar shellfish or pasta in a delicate sauce. Featuring bright lemony fruit and a medium aciditity, it's tart and crisp and best when cold.
External Reviews for Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas
A crisp and refreshing wine with citrus fruit, pear, and peach flavors. It has a medium-body, bright fruit character and subtle floral aroma.
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.
winemaker's notes:Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow color, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling. Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of da
winemaker's notes:Has an attractive straw-greenish yellow color, with ripe lemon nuances. Bright and slightly sparkling. Stands out for its special intensity and elegance, its aroma reminiscent of damp, dewy fresh herbs with a perfume of semi-ripe apples. A fine sparkling sensation on the palate, with a complexity of tastes denoting the freshness of vegetation in the valley and the essence of the varietal. Persistent, full-bodied and tasty...a classic.
An excellent co-operative established in 1968 with over 550 members. These members have 420 hectares of vineyard, primarily in the Salnés Valley in Rias Baixas. Martín Códax wine pays homage to the troubadour of the same name who lived in this region in the 13th century. It is said that he was born and lived in Galicia. His songs exalted the beauty of women, gallant love and wine. Albariño is the white grape variety of note from Spain with a style very similar to Viognier. It offers a delicate yet forceful peachy aroma on the nose and palate and is a great choice if you prefer something a little different to Chardonnay. Vivid straw-yellow green in colour with a touch of ripe lemon, on the nose this wine is intense, aromatic and elegant with aromas of fresh herbs, green apples, citric fruits and grapefruit. On the palate it is persistent, round, full-bodied and fresh.
