|Origin||Spain, Ribeira Sacra|
Almost extinct a few years ago, Godello has enjoyed a revival in recent years on the back of the Albarino/Galicia boom. A similar bright aromatic style to Albarino but with a touch more crisp mineral or lemon citrus cut. Great aperitif or with simple grilled fish.

Karma do Sil: Full Wine List and Profile
Antonio Lombardia is a brilliant winemaker and the owner of some beautiful vineyards. For a few years we were delighted to work with him when he formed half of Pena das Donas, making fantastic Godellos – they became firm favourites. Sadly Antonio and his partner business partner have gone their separate ways – with NAtonio wanting more freedom to make better, purer wines – rather than building up volume, which was what he was being encouraged to do. So it was a bold move to go it alone – but a move we are delighted he has made! With his own business and his newly-built winery at Karma do Sil, he is free to make the Godello as he likes it – and as we so admired before. Maga is the first wine he has released – using the same fruit as before and the quality is striking. Everything here is hand-picked, carefully destemmed and then fermented at cool temperatures to get the purest expression of Godello from his prime fruit. This sees no oak – but spends a good amount of time in tank on the lees to intensify the flavour and add texture – so simple yet this is intelligent, careful winemaking and he is certainly making the best wines we have seen yet!
