Bodegas Martín Códax 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 Martín Códax has grown and developed; always supporting its people, its land and its culture. 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 Martín Códax become a symbol of Galician wines inside or outside of our borders/country. Martín Códax is a modern and dynamic co-operative, situated in the Salnés Valley, to the north of Rías Baixas, in the north-western region of Galicia. It is the largest producer in Galicia and an estate-grown Albariño specialist, conducting ongoing research into the variety. It was founded in 1986 by 50 families and has since grown to over 550 members. The co-operative was instrumental in the creation of the Rías Baixas DO in 1988 (the statutes were signed at the winery) and has championed the Albariño variety, now the most widely planted in the region. Ninth generation winemaker Luciano Amoedo still heads the winemaking team, alongside Katia Álvarez.
Clean, attractive straw-yellow colour with a bright lemon glint. A delicate vanilla touch mingles with light perfumes of smoky wood and notes of lemon, grapefruit and white stone fruit. Dry, well balanced and full-bodied, its persistence and complexity makes Organistrum harmoniously rounded, ending with a long aftertaste.
