Wine Find | 2012 Martin Codax Albarino

January 06, 2014

From Rias Baixas, Spain

Price: $15

Serve with: Bacalao (salt cod) or other fish

This intensely flavorful dry white wine from Galicia in northern Spain delivers a lot of complexity and style for its price. It offers flavors of lemon, herbs, apples, minerals, smoke and pine. It's made entirely in stainless steel so there's no oak influence. What you get is pure fruit and a medium-bodied wine of impressive length. Thankfully, it's available in generous quantities.
