A bright greenish yellow colour with golden highlights.
A uniquely fruity aroma where the variety is clearly appreciated, highlighting hints of ripe apples, apricots, and peach aromas.
In the mouth, it is rich, mellow and well-balanced. The aftertaste is fully rounded and off dry on the palate with juicy fruit flavours, clean acidity and a long, mineral-dominated finish.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Albarino has been very trendy for nearly a decade, and Martin Codax?s 2013 Burgans Albarino is one of the better efforts. This 100% Albarino aged in stainless steel with lees stirring comes from a steep hillside, inland site that is harvested three to four weeks later than most of the coastal Albarinos. A custom cuvee put together by Eric Solomon, it offers crisp, fresh, lively honeysuckle, white peach and apricot notes, medium-bodied, dry flavors, and lots of fruit and perfume. It is a perfect foil for all types of seafood. Consume it over the next year. (Jun 2014)

Burgans, celtic name, is the name of the slope where the winery is located, in the middle of Salnes Valley. From there, you can see amazing sightseeing’s region and the Arousa Ria.
Its symbol, the triskel, makes reference to the origins of life, to a eternal development and to continuous learning.
Burgans has a modern process of production. Our enologist, thorough a tasting of the different vats, chose the most suitable for this wine which is fermented at low temperatures in order to promote the primary aromas.
Bodegas Martin Codax was founded in 1986 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language, are preserved. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love and to the sea of our coastline.
Since it’s founding, Bodegas Martin Codax has grown and developed; always supporting its people, its land and its culture. The culture is promoted in more than 40 countries over the world.
A project that started with the dream and efforts of a group of winegrowers is now a reality and it is this reality which has let Bodegas Martin Codax become a symbol of Galician wines inside or outside of our borders/country.
