A first class wine.
This is an excellent budget Albarino from the renowned Martin Codax Bodega. It is considered to be semi sec, but my half Gallego husband describes it as semi dulce. It is much liked by our British friends. We have bought a couple of cases of 12 and will eventually buy more, as it has an excellent quality to price ratio. Regards Win Mecia.
This is the "junior" wine from the renowned producer of Rias Baixas Alvarinho, Martin Codax. But even though it is considerably cheaper than the flagship Martin Codax, it packs a real punch. Deliciously citrussy, it is fresh and vibrant on the palate. Excellent as an aperitif and a great accompaniment to fish.
Fresh and lively off dry with bags of fruit and good acidity.
Unlike a typical Albarinho this has some residual sugar and presents as off dry on the palate, however retains a nice level of acidity to balance things. Peach, red apples and melon on the nose with zesty citrus lemon dominating the palate. Fresh and efforvescent with the slightest hint of sherbet spritz.
Great semi dry version of Alborino
Had this wine at lunch during a recent visit to Madrid and loved it. Ordered it from Spain via Vinissimus, Great price, speedy delivery, superb wine. Will be using Vinissimus again.
A summer glass of zing:
Light refreshing Albarinho ideal for summer quaffing. Light citrus elements with a very slight prickle to it. Good value from a solid Bodegas. Just need the sun. Will buy more.
