Natalie's Score: 90/100

Lovely lemon lift and lime vibrancy throughout this medium-bodied wine. Clean, crisp and refreshing without any heavy oak. Great aperitif or companion to a wide range of dishes. Crisp and clean on the finish. Very nice!

Albarino food pairings: seafood, salads, vegetarian dishes.

Splendid Salad Wine

Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I have been seeing more Albarinos at the LCBO of late. That makes me very happy! Brilliant straw yellow in the glass. Medium body. Overviews of citrus, green apple, vanilla and perfume. Thirst busting with the citrus notes and good acidity. We enjoyed as a humidity breaking sipper. I second @NatalieMacLean in that it is an excellent salad wine.
Martín Códax is the largest producer in the region, but his wines always taste beautifully handmade. This is the first write up ever of the spectacular 2011 albariño and it will grab every one of your taste buds and give them a terrific work out. With delicate floral notes and a bracing apple and lemon balm theme this is a heavenly wine. Source: Matthew Jukes, matthewjukes.com, April 21, 2012
