July 2019 | Martin Codax Albarño

Our July staff pick was chosen by Rhonda, an employee at Bremer’s for over 15 years and our wine/food pairing guru.

With the warm weather in full swing, Rhonda went with a light, crisp, and VERY refreshing Spanish white wine – Martin Codax Albariño. Not only is this wine perfect for hot summer days, it also goes perfectly with summer dishes. Rhonda recommends sipping this wine alongside appetizers, tapas, shellfish, or salads.

“The Martín Códax Rías Baixas Albariño is delicate and medium-bodied with a crisp, dry finish. On the palate, flavors of pear, passion fruit, ripe apple, peach and lemon zest are framed by bright minerality and hints of spice. Attractive floral aromatics and brisk acidity make this a versatile, food-friendly wine.” -Bodegas Martin Codax

Try pairing this perfect summer white with this recipe we found for Garlic Lime Roasted Shrimp by A Spicy Perspective. (It’s got almost all of Rhonda’s pairing suggestions in one… shellfish, appetizer, and salad!)
