Juicy, lush nose of tropical and stone fruits. White peach, hint of lime, apricot and white flowers. Slightest grassy tone as well. The palate is shockingly unrelated, full of mineral tones. Unexpected given al the lush fruit on the nose. Very salinic and sharp on the palate. Very tight acid. It's inconsistent, so loses points for me. Slightly green asparagus finish.

This Martín Códax Albariño is a very pale gold color that sparkles a little in the light. On the nose it is sharp and clean with strong aromas of citrus and hints of fresh cut grass. At first taste it has a fantastic abundance of tastes from green grapes, granny smith apples, tropical fruits and cantaloupe. It effervesces a little on the tongue and ends with a fresh tingly finish, which I liked a lot. A do like clean fresh wines and this one is exactly that. A wonderful scrumptiously fun summer wine that pairs perfectly with spicy Mexican food. This is a super fun wine to bring to a summer garden party.

The Martin Codax label is now under the Gallo umbrella and produced in large quantities. The 2009 vintage was outstanding in Rias Baixas so the 2009 Martin Codax Albarintilde;o 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 1ndash;2 years.

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.

The middle of this wine is pale and dry, with a cool mineral rush that seems to soak up the soil into the glass. Those mineral flavors last, while the fruit itself has more of a candied tone, like marzipan and strawberries. Itrsquo;s quirky and distinctly albarintilde;o. For gambas al ajillo.

Drier than many Albarintilde;os, the Martin Codax is a crisp, medium-bodied, food-friendly white. Bursting with juicy apricot, peach and apple flavors, the wine is tempered by a palpable mineral base, making it a perfect accompaniment to any seafood or chicken dish.

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 Spainrsquo;s answer to Francersquo;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.

It is difficult to find a good Albarino for less than $25, but this 2010 (100% Albarino) is a delicious, light to medium-bodied effort displaying hints of apricots, white peaches and honeysuckle. Fresh, dry and fruity, it will provide enjoyment over the next year.

A crisp, juicy white, showing bright flavors of peach, rose, green almond and light herbs, with mouthwatering acidity that brings you back for another sip. Drink now.

Winemaker's Notes:

ERGO is a contemporary expression of the classic Spanish grape, Tempranillo, with its vibrant red fruit aromas, juicy texture and lingering finish.

Tasting Notes:

Códax always manages to combine the best of Albariño: its peachy notes, as ripe as apricots, and its sweet citrus character. The wine's fresh and fruity style doesn’t lack for mineral and stone; it’s just overwhelmed by tangy fruit. The finish lingers with refreshing tartness. Drink now or in the next few years.
