Wine Review: This light yellow colored Albarino from Martin Codax opens with a mild pear, wet stone and candle wax like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, very acidic, lively and juicy. The flavor profile is a mineral infused lime with notes tangerine and green apple. The finish is dry and refreshing. This wine is made for a hot summer day at the beach. With food, I am thinking steamer with drawn butter. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Vivid straw-yellow green colour with a touch of ripe lemon. Bright and slightly sparkling. Intense and elegant aroma with hints of fresh herbs, green apples, citric fruits and grapefruit. It is persistent, rounded and full-bodied, with a light petulance that gives the wine an impressive and vivacious sense of freshness. Serve with seafood, shellfish, poultry, rice, & mild cheese.
