A bright greenish yellow colour with golden highlights.
A uniquely fruity aroma where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting hints of ripe apples, apricots, and peach aromas.
In the mouth, it is rich, mellow and well-balanced. The aftertaste is fully rounded and off dry on the palate with juicy fruit flavours, clean acidity and a long, mineral-dominated finish.

Burgans is usually one of the better value-priced Albarinos on the market, and this 2014 keeps that momentum going. White-flower and stone-fruit aromas are a touch dusty, while the palate feels peachy. Stone-fruit flavors are familiar, while the finish is zesty and clean. - M.S.
This is from a famous bodega that was one of the first to import their Albarino to the United States. Albarino is now one of the hot, fashionable, light-bodied, dry whites, somewhat of a Spanish version of a light Condrieu from France’s Northern Rhône Valley. This well-made Albarino is dry, quite crisp, with notes of honeysuckle, apricots and peaches in a medium-bodied, fresh, lively style. Drink it over the next year, as most of its appeal is in its compelling fragrance.

|Bodegas Martin Codax was founded in 1986 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language, are preserved. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love and to the sea of our coastline.
Since it’s founding, Bodegas Martin Codax has grown and developed; always supporting its people, its land and its culture. The culture is promoted in more than 40 countries over the world.
A project that started with the dream and efforts of a group of winegrowers is now a reality and it is this reality which has let Bodegas Martin Codax become a symbol of Galician wines inside or outside of our borders/country.
