Martin Codax, the man who inspired our Albarino's name, was one of most important Galician men of Middle Ages. Vindel parchment has its medial poems, the oldest of Galician-portuguese old language, which sing the prises of love and passion for sea. Martin Codax is a straight Albarino and it is produced following a rigorous and meticulous process in order to guarantee its varietal pureness and the traditional essence of the Salnes Valley original wines. It has intense and elegant aromas with hints of fresh herbs, green apples, citric fruits and grapefruit. In the mouth it is persistent, rounded and full-bodied, with a light petillance that gives the wine an impressive and vivacious sense of freshness.
|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.
