Martin Codax Albarino
Please view wine facts for the current vintage below as the vintage on the image may vary.
Produced under the stringent rules of the Rias Baixas Denominacion de Origen (DO), Martin Codax Albarino pairs well with almost any food, and is designed to be consumed young.
An aromatic wine that is elegant, dry and crisp on the finish. The key aromatic and flavor notes are pear, passion fruit and apple. Acidity is lively and integrates well with aromatic elements into a balanced whole.
It can be served as an aperitif, and aged well it matches with food. This is not only because of the firm acidity, but also because of the wine's mouth-engaging fullness.

Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1986 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language with the original music, are preserved. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love and to the sea of our coastline.
Since it’s founding, Bodegas Martín Códax has grown and developed; always supporting its people, its land and its culture. The culture is promoted in more than 40 countries over the world.
A project that started with the dream and efforts of a group of winegrowers is now a reality and it is this reality which has let Bodegas Martín Códax become a symbol of Galician wines inside or outside of our borders/country.
