2011 Martin Codax Albarino

Pale in color with a very light nose. On the mid pallet the wine displays some mild minerality, and citrus notes. This is a very mild Albarino. Not great, but not terrible either. I would give it an 88 or so.

Tasting Note
Martín Códax is the largest producer in the region, but his wines always taste beautifully handmade. This is the first write up ever of the spectacular 2011 albariño and it will grab every one of your taste buds and give them a terrific work out. With delicate floral notes and a bracing apple and lemon balm theme this is a heavenly wine. (Matthew Jukes, matthewjukes.com, April 21, 2012)
