Wine Martín Códax Albariño 2020
Alcohol content i
Bottle size and vintage
Made entirely from grapes grown in the winery's own vineyards in the Salnés valley, this Martín Códax wine is a quintessential Albariño; inviting the drinker to taste and appreciate the pure essence of this varietal. The Albariño is an aromatic grape with a strong concentration of sugar and a high level of acidity which gives the wine its freshness and character.
The wine has a beautiful yellow colour with green and shiny hints. In the nose, aromas of apple and ripe citric fruits (mandarin and lemon) stand out, giving a clue to the perfect balance it offers on drinking. White flowers (mimosa and orange blossom) blend in with herbaceous hints of hay and fennel, rounding off a charming, and discretely balsamic, almost minty, nose. Enveloping, fresh and creamy in the mouth, it has a long finish with elegant mineral aromas appearing which may remind us of talcum and salt, and bring character and lightness to the wine. It eventually becomes elegantly bitter at the finish.

Il bianco per l’estate.
Bottiglia molto bella con tappo senza capsula e sbordato. Il vino è fresco ed invitante, un piacere da bere in maniera semplice sorso dopo sorso. Unico consiglio, tenete sempre almeno due bottiglie in frigo perché una non vi basterà! Abbinamento consigliato, filetti di baccalà fritti dorati.by: FREDDY CELADA (26 Mar) - Vintage 2020

My fave with seafood
I have drunk an ocean of albariños but I always come back to this one. It has the required citrusy elements but is just so unctuously smooth and rich. Absolutely superb with seafood (prawns, lobster, clams, crab).by: Mister Mac 59 (28/09/2020) - Vintage 2019
Smooth and Subtle
Delicious example of Albariño with all the superb flavours delicately blended
