Martin Codax Albariño | Row 34

Martin Codax Albariño is a sensational white wine from the Rias Baixas region of Northwestern Spain. It is crisp and full of dry white fruits - bracing the palate with citrus zest, granny smith apple, white peach skin and pineapple. A fresh minerality adds definition and sturdiness. It is extremely food friendly and elegantly pairs itself with briny oysters, a delicate stripped bass crudo, and a hearty brown butter lobster, corn, tomato and basil dish. The Albariño rightly lives up to it's nickname "wine of the sea". It even serves to compliment  dessert - a lemon pound cake with fresh berries.
Row 34, named for a kind of oyster raised at the Island Creek Oyster farm, graciously and effortlessly hosted this wine dinner for about 25 bloggers and friends. Located in Fort Point, this industrial "workingmans oyster bar" is lively and loud, relaxed and fun. Newcomers and locals alike, I recommend you pay them a visit.
