Martin Codax Albarino 2007
The Bodegas Martin Codax Winery is located in the rolling hill of the Rias Baixas region on the very northern border of Spain. The 2007 Albarino is a white wine made from 100% albarino grapes. This medium bodied wine has a yellowish green color with a floral aroma along with citrus and herbs. On the palate, I picked up some peaches, pear and mellons with the bite of a granny smith apple on the back. This reminds you a little of a Viognier, as well as having the acidity of a Riesling. Very nice wine to combine with an appetizer, a salad, seafood or even a white meat. Retails for about $10-12. Excellent value wine. Wine Enthusiast gave this a 90 point rating.
