Elaboration of Martín Códax 2006
Martín Códax 2006 (Albariño)
Martín Códax Albariño is a refreshing food friendly wine, showcasing a pale yellowish colour with touches of bright gold. It is an aromatic and complex wine that is rich, elegant, dry and crisp. It is full-bodied, with flavors of ripe apples, peach, apricot, melon, grapefruit and lemon zest melded perfectly together with a bright minerality. The striking balance of acidity, body and aromas allows the wine to adapt to the palate exhibiting its versatility of fresh and bright characteristics to a rounder mouth-feel as the meal evolves.
Albariño is an ideal complement to any seafood dish such as blackened scallops over angel hair pasta, grilled oysters and salmon with pear, apple and lime chutney. It will also complement a variety of dishes such as summer salads, pasta and grilled pheasant with a pineapple, orange marmalade.
Bodegas Martín Codax was opened in 1986 on the initiative of a group of growers.More about the Winery
