Martin Codax Albarino Rias Baixas 2016

External Review by We Speak Wine:

Our Martín Códax Rías Baixas Albariño is delicate and medium-bodied with a crisp, dry finish. On the palate, flavors of pear, passion fruit, ripe apple, peach and lemon zest are framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. Attractive floral aromatics and brisk acidity make this a versatile, food-friendly wine. - Winery Description Founded more than 25 years ago by 50 local farmers in the Galicia region of northwest Spain, Martín Códax is a modern and innovative winery in the heart of Rías Baixas. Today, supported by more than 550 families, this highly acclaimed cooperative incorporates 1,400 vineyard acres, with small parcels farmed by hand. Winemaker Katia Álvarez crafts the signature white varietal of Martín Códax, Albariño, from the seaside vineyards along the rocky coastline of Rías Baixas. Called “the wine of the sea,” Albariño is the perfect complement to seafood and shellfish, two staples of Galician cuisine.
