Martín Códax Albariño Rías Baixas Burgáns 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

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.

Pretty great albarino for the price. Aromas of apple, pineapple, and citrus. All echoed on the palate, which has a nicely tongue-tingling acidity to help counterbalance all the fruit. Just made for Spanish seafood dishes. Excellent QPR.

The wine was a nice, medium yellow and very aromatic. After swirling the wine, I only had to put my nose near the glass to pick up the nice lime and green apple aromas. On a second check, I also found ripe melon and stone fruits. In the mouth, the Martin Codax tasted of lime, blossoms, and peach, mixed with the slightest bit of honey. The wine was crisp and refreshing without being too acidic. For my complete review, visit my blog at http://bit.ly/17rUSb

Easy to drink, refreshing, pairs well with summer foods, equally good by itself. If you like a good reisling or pinot grigio you will probably enjoy this.

Codax really got it good in 2007. This is one of this co-ops 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.

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.
