If the pretty labels tempts you to pull this dry Galician white off the shelf, so should the wine itself because its clean, herbal-fresh aromatics are complemented by nicely textured stone fruit flavours that are a little richer and fuller than its Rias Baixas counterpart, Albariño, while a satisfyingly juicy, dry finish makes it as attractive an alternative with grilled prawns, salads and tapas.

Candied lemon, soft acid, salty notes on the finish. Good concentration, simple flavour profile, refreshing without being sharp. Drinking range: 2017 - 2019 Rating: 15.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Mar 2017)

Karma do Sil

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 Antonio & Franciso 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!
