Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

86 points Jay Miller (Wine Advocate): ...the 2009 Martin Codax Albarino has a bit more depth and concentration than has been the standard recently. It was aged sur lie for 4 months and displays a pleasant nose of spring flowers and lemon zest. Crisp on the palate with good balance and moderate length, it will drink nicely for another 1-2 years. (Apr 2010)

Flowery, pollen, peach, green plum, a little waxy, touch of seashell – vibrant acids on entry, ripe and round feeling with an almost lush quality to the the peach and apricot fruit, even a touch of apricot pit adding a nice bit of tension in the mouth, touch os mineral spice on the finish. Solid – 87pts

Medium intensity tropical fruit aromas of papaya and stone fruits (peach) on the nose. A hint of sweetness on the palate's attack with a dry finish, it's lightly flavored but quite refreshing with good acidity and citrus zest.

Firm and full-bodied, this muscular white delivers more structure than flavor now, but the concentration and balance are evident, and the wine should open with time. It has ripe notes of pear, melon and almond, austere but deep. Best from 1999 through 2002.

Rich yet vibrant. Pear and almond flavors are focused and clean in this firm white. A lively accompaniment to food.

Winemaker 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.

The rich texture of this big white is kept lively by a fresh acidity, allowing the ripe pear, butter adn honeyed flavors to linger lushly on the finish.

Codax really got it good in 2007. This is one of this co-op's best-balanced, easy-to-like bottlings we can remember. The bouquet is clean as a whistle, with pear, apple and slate. Graceful on the palate, with citrus and green-apple flavors. A little lime carves shape into the long finish.

Starts out with gentle matchstick aromas, but with time itrsquo;s all about white fruits, green herbs and apple. The palate has a firm, standard, high-quality mouthfeel along with tart apple, white peach and pineapple flavors. The finish is pure lime and snap, while the refreshment quotient runs long and strong.

Martin Codax was a 13th century Galician troubadour whose music celebrated love and wine. This wine is made using state of the art technology from centuries old Galician grape known as Albariño. Aromatic, crisp and dry in style, it is traditionally served with fresh seafood or shellfish harvested from the nearby Atlantic coast of Spain.
