Single plot selection (Agro de Tremoedo vineyard) where the grapes reach a special pink colour which will bring a unique aromatic complexity to the wine. It comes from an extreme vinewgrowing aimed at searching low vigour vines, very porous and with a high leaf surface which cause low yields and unique qulaities in those pink grapes. Fermentation is carried out at 17 ºC in stainless steel and in new French oak and light-toasted barrels of 225 L. After finishing the fermentation, the wine goes for 4 months of bâtonnage in oak, do the coupage afterwards and age for at least a year in stainless steel
Bodegas Martín Códax was founded in 1985 and was named after the most known Galician troubadour whose medieval poems, the oldest of Galician-Portuguese language with the original music, are preserved. In the poems, the troubadour sings to love and to the sea of our coastline.
