Characteristics of Martín Codax Vindel

Martín Códax Vindel is a white wine produced by the winery Martín Códax in Vilariño (Pontevedra). D.O. Rías Baixas.

The Martín Códax winery was created in 1986 under the name Cooperativa de Cosecheiros de Albariño de Vilariño-Cambados. It was not until 1996 when this cooperative became a Public Limited Company (S.A.) and changed its name to the current one.

The winery took the name of a famous troubadour from Galicia, Martín Códax, whose songs are some of the oldest in the entire Galician-Portuguese language.
 

Martín Códax is located at the top of the Burgáns hill, in the heart of the Salnés valley. Its facilities, always under continuous expansion and refurbishment, are modern and up-to-date. Its wines reflect the tradition and character of the area, providing a more modern and updated vision.

Martín Códax Vindel is a white wine made with Albariño from the plot Agro de Tremoedo, cultivated through extreme viticulture aimed at low yielding vineyards, 35hL/Ha.

The harvest is carried out manually. Once at the winery, the grapes ferment in stainless steel deposits at a controlled temperature, 17ºC, un 225-litre French oak barrels. Once the fermentation has ended, the wine goes through a reductive ageing in stainless steel deposits for at least a year.

Tasting notes Martín Codax Vindel

The 2017 vintage has been distinguished by the excellent health of the vineyard and the intense heat. Winter and spring were warmer than normal, accelerating the growth cycle 15 days and which was prolonged during summer, bringing forward the date of the harvest to the end of August. The growth cycle went smoothly, with good flowering and no notable pests. In summer, the drought worsened and in August they began to see symptoms of dehydration in the bunches. However, rains at the beginning of September restored the balance of the vineyard. The wines of this vintage are identified by having something more volume due to its warmth and great freshness. A vintage to enjoy young, or as it is the norm for great wines of the area, to save for a few years.
Martín Códax Vindel 2015 is a full, mature wine with character. A very good vintage that displays all the fruity character of this wine. Aromas of white stone fruit, floral notes and a touch of citrus on the nose. On the palate it has volume and sweetness and is very lingering.

Designation of Origin D.O. Rías Baixas

Winery Martín Códax

Rías Baixas wines would not be where they are today without the native Albariño grape variety. Although red wines are also produced in Rías Baixas, practically 100% of Rías Baixas wines are white. Among them, the vast majority of them are made with the Albariño grape. As well as young wines, fresh and aromatic, the region also makes wines aged in the barrels, complex wines with great personalities. Albariño wines can either be single varieties, or be part of a blend with other characteristic grapes of the region: Treixadura, Loureira Blanca and Godello.

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.
