About

Product Description:

"The fruit for the Rías Baixas Albariño was hand picked, de-stemmed and pressed gently to preserve the delicate varietal characteristics of the Albariño grape. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks for three weeks at a maximum temperature of 64˚F. Forty percent of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation to enhance the flavor complexity in the wine, with the remainder held back to preserve the naturally crisp acidity of the Albariño grape. The wine rested on light lees for four months with no oak contact.

The Martín Códax Rías Baixas Albariño is delicate and medium-bodied with a crisp, dry finish.

On the palate, flavors of pear, passion fruit, ripe apple, peach and lemon zest are framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. Attractive floral aromatics and brisk acidity make this a versatile, food-friendly wine." -Winemaker's Note
