Reviews of Martín Códax Magnum 2017
A Albariño with a very dense colour. It has aromas of honey. I liked its density.
I was surprised it was a white with such an intense colour. Very aromatic, with a predominance of bananas and lychees. Too sweet for my taste.
We didn't pair it well, but the wine was good.
An elegant Rias Baixas but with a very deep dense colour. Martín Codax Magnum recalls white fruit. It tasted a lot like wine.
