About

Product Description:

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.

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.
