Characteristics of Marieta
Marieta is a white wine from the D.O Rías Baixas produced by the winery Martín Códax. This winery is located in the town of Cambados (Pontevedra).
Marieta is 100% produced from the varietal Albariño. The grapes originate from small parcels that have been trained to grow on high trellises.
The harvest is performed by hand in 20kg containers.
For its production, the wine is alcoholically fermented at a controlled 16-18ºC in stainless steel containers. Before the fermentation is finished, the process is stopped by the use of a rapid cooling. This method is used to maintain the residual sugar of the wine at 14gr/L.
Marieta is the first semi-dry Albariño wine ever produced.

The Albariño grape is a spanish white variety with a strong floral and terpene character, ideal for producing not only young fresh and aromatic whites, but also (barrel) aged wines. Initially the DO. Rías Baixes was only seen as a region of great hope for Spanish whites, but it has managed to turn this hope into reality.
The first Albariño with the Martín Códax label was made from the 1986 harvest. Its name evokes the figure of a medieval poet and illustrious troubadour, and it was the first serious project in Rías Baixas to definitively challenge the image of sparse and cloudy wine. After years of hard work, large investments and difficult decisions, this winery has demonstrated that it not only holds a sixth sense for foretelling new trends in the wine market, but can also execute them with impeccable skill.
