Review: 2009 Martin Codax Albarino Rias Baixas

Spain’s Albarino grape continues to make great strides as an alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. Martin Codax’s Rias Baixas Albarino is another great and classic example of what this grape can be: Bright yellow in color, with fresh herbs and light fruit notes on the nose. In the mouth it explodes with lemon, grapefruit, and a little fig flavor. Lots of bright acidity and a clean, refreshing finish. Simple, but quite enjoyable.
