Martin Codax 2008 which I posted in December. This second one is also produced by Bodegas Martin Codax from the Rias Baixas region of Spain, The Burgans Albarino 2009. ($14)
I found the Burgans to be much different than the Martin Codax. A little more complex, more body and a bit sweeter.
Aromas were green apple, wild flowers and peach with a little citrus. In the mouth there was lots of apple, some lemon and honey. The finish wasn't really dry, but not that sweet and not too long. Sort of like a tart green apple with a few drops of honey.
Paired really nice with a broiled salmon steak, brown rice and steamed veggies.
Another nice wine I am going to have to add to my list of favorites. I just wish Albarino wines would be easier to find. Certainly worth the hunt and often the find is worth the hunt.
