Albariño Martín Códax, Rías Baixas

Martín Códax was named after a Galician troubadour whose medieval poems are love songs to the sea.

If the soil and the sun are the main characters in the story of Albariño, then the sea is the supporting act. The wild Atlantic coastline forces growers up to high altitudes, the sea tempering the climate so it’s damper and cooler than neighboring regions.

This Albariño is Rías Baixas in a bottle.

The grapes are grown in terrifyingly steep amphitheaters overlooking the waves – you can imagine you can taste the salt in the air in your glass.

Peachy. Citrussy. Fresh. It’s the perfect seaside wine, so it’s no surprise that it’s made for seafood – for octopus, for piles of clams and hard-won goose barnacles, a Galician specialty.
