You can probably guess that the wine's going to taste good, or at least authentic, when it's named after a 13-century Galician composer and performer. That would be Martin Codax. The grape is albarino, the light, crisp pride of Spain's northwest Rias Baixas appellation. It starts out with ripe peach, then abruptly turns dry as a bone. Top stuff for shellfish or serious summertime refreshment on the deck. ($21.49 in Nova Scotia.)
