Martn Cdax Albario 2011 - Ras Baixas DO Martín Códax Albariño 2011 - Rías Baixas DO

Martín Códax is the largest producer in Galicia with 450 hectares of vineyard planted to Albariño, which represents 13% of the total Rías Baixas DO. The wine is an aromatic, crisp and dry style that is perfect with all types of seafood.




VINEYARD
The grapes for this wine are sourced from a co-operative started by 50 growers in 1968. The membership stands at over 550 growers today and the vineyard area stands at c.420 hectares and 1,400 different plots.

The vineyards are primarily situated in the Salnes valley in Galicia in north-eastern Spain. The valley is the coolest, northern part of the Rías Baíxas DO and it benefits from some maritime influence, cooling the night-time temperatures and ensuring a slow maturation period for the grapes.

GRAPE VARIETIES
100% Albariño

VINIFICATION
The wine was fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel vats and underwent full malolactic fermentation. It spent four months on its fine lees which gave a smooth, almost creamy texture to the wine.

No oak aging has been used, leaving a wonderfully fresh and aromatic wine.

TASTING NOTE
Bright, straw-yellow in colour. Intensely perfumed, with hints of fresh herbs, green apples, citrus fruit and grapefruit. It is long, rounded and full bodied on the palate, with a light petillance that gives the wine a vivacious, fresh finish.
