February Wine of the Month!  Martin Codax  Burgans 2016 Albarino

When white wine is so crisp, joyful and inviting, we can't stop loving it...and drinking it! The latest vintage of Burgans Albarino is such a wine.

2016 Martin Códax ‘Burgáns’ Albariño, Rías  Baixas, Spain

Albariño is Spain’s refreshing, dry white wine produced in the cool and rainy Rías Baixas region in northwestern Spain.  While other grapes may not ripen in these conditions, it is exactly why here, in Galicia, the Albariño grape really shines. 


Albariño has been grown in this northern Atlantic coastal region of Spain since the 12th century, but only started getting worldwide attention in the 1980s when the winemaker for the Martin Codax winery, Luciano Amoedo Rodino, help establish Rías Baixas as an official wine appellation and began promoting Albariño wines in international markets. 


Now Albariño is recognized as one of Spain’s noble grapes, capable of producing world class white wines known for being amazingly versatile at the table and able to pair with a wide variety of foods.  The classic accompaniment is seafood,  of course, but Albariño easily stands up to flavorful and spicy foods from all over the globe.


Codax’s ‘Burgans’ Albariño has all the great qualities of classic Albariño with intense aromas of citrus flowers and peaches, and zesty flavors of ripe stone and citrus fruits.  Vibrant acidity and minerality keep this fruit-forward wine crisp, refreshing and light, making it great as an aperitif.  Because it is such a delightful interpretation of the varietal, we selected it our February Wine of the Month. 

$12.99 per bottle   $155.88 per case
