Tuesday Quick Sip: 2007 Martin Codax Albarino

martincodaxalbarinoWine Info

Grape: 100% Albarino

Region: Rias Baixas, Spain

Price: $17

My Tasting Notes

Nose: apricot, apple, pear and almond

Taste: peach, mineral, pear and citrus

Mouthfeel: nice tart acidity, yet round and full bodied

Finish: long and clean, with some good minerality

We had this the other night with veggie tacos and it paired beautifully. In addition to this, Albarino goes really well with seafood, and poultry dishes such as lemon chicken.

Cheers!

  1. I seem to remember getting this in the $11-$13 range and found it a great deal.

    Though I like it, $17 would be high enough for me to look for something new.

    Those greedy bastards!!!! ; )
