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 - A custom cuvee made for Eric Solomon from this large producer, this 2011 Albarino reveals loads of tropical fruit, white peach, honeysuckle and apricot notes along with medium body and a fresh, lively style. The crisp acid and abundant fruit make this a hedonistic, crowd-pleasing, dry white to drink over the next 1-2 years.” (Jun 2012)

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.
