The acclaimed white grape Albarino thrives in the rain and mists of the Rias Baixas DO in Northwestern Spain. Here Albarino is known as the wine of the sea, both because of the vineyards' proximity to the nearby Atlantic Ocean and the wine's exquisite compatibility with the local seafood. Martin Codax Albarino is a crisp, elegant wine with notes of pear, passion fruit and apple. Named for the 13th century Galician troubadour whose romantic works are still sung locally, Martin Codax Albarino is a bright, refreshing example of this distinctive grape.
