Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced 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

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
