The varietal purity and the traditional essence of the original wines of the Valley in bottle.
Martin Codax , The character who gave the name to this albarino, was one of the most important Galician troubadours of the Middle Ages. The Pergamino Vindel houses his songs, the most ancient of the Galician-Portuguese, which extol the love and passion for the sea.
Clean, bright yellow lemon with greenish highlights. In medium intensity nose with ripe citrus notes of lime and mandarin. The flower note predominates (hawthorn, jasmin and orange blossom) and a grass-like herbaceous background. In wedding it is enveloping, fresh and with good balance. The retronasal remembers the note of the ripe citrus fruit.
Elaboration and Aging
The apricot Martin Codax is made entirely with apricot grapes, following a rigorous and careful process to guarantee its varietal purity and the traditional essence of the wines originating from Salnes.
