Martin Códax Rias Baixas 2014 Albariño,

Martin Códax Rias Baixas 2014 Albariño  (Spain), 
$13.99-$15.99, 90 points, was a light golden color grading clear at the glass edge.
Honey, apples, pome blossoms, and a hint of mango aromas were wonderful.
Light-bodied (bone dry) with mouth-watering acidity carried a light mineral flavor accented with distinctive cumquat, and a nearly undiscernible effervescent lime with peach flavors.
Finished long on tart cumquat, orange peel, lime, and an innocuous 12% alcohol.
Paired well with my Yellow-fin tuna salad and chips.

  1. Sounds delightful.
    Chips? Fries?

    1. VG: This was the youngest and freshest Albariño I've had, and they may account for how pleased I was with it.
