Region: Monterrei, Spain
Martin Codax Mara Martin Godello 2020
The Mara Martin Godello comes from DO Monterrei (meaning king’s mountain) and is further inland in comparison to DO Rías Baixas. It is warmer here, but still sees some Atlantic influence, with the average rainfall at 683mm per year.
The varietal aromas of hay, apple and pear dominate with intense hints of wild flowers and subtle nuances of lime citrus.
On the palate, the wine is intense and upfront, with an attractive depth and structure that derives from lees contact, and a long, persistent finish.
