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.

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

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.

From the Rias Baixas region of Spain, this Albariño is dedicated to Martin Codax, a 13th century Galacian troubadour whose music celebrated love and wine. Aromatic, crisp and dry in style, accented with a floral bouquet and a clean refreshing lemony acidity that will marry well with your favorite seafood dish. And by the way, Parker rated it 90 points.

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.

An explosively exotic nose of dried apricots, ripe peaches, and honeysuckle is followed by a medium-bodied wine with delicious fruit and purity. Completely tank-fermented and aged, this is Spain's answer to France's exotic, honeyed wines from Cordrieu. Sadly, the 1998 vintage produced an extremely small crop because of spring frosts. This offering, the ideal Spanish aperitif, or a wine to serve with a multitude of seafood dishes, should be consumed during its first year because of its fragile perfume.

This lively white offers ripe pineapple and candied orange flavors, yet a firm backbone of acidity keeps it refreshing. Light-bodied yet full-flavored. Drink now.

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.
