In the right hands, the Godello grape of Galicia can yield wines of Puligny-Montrachet-like purity and structure. This example, from the under-explored, precipitous Sil Valley (plagued by drought in 2017), is one of the good ones. Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Dec 2017)

14,000 bottles made. Very noble and correct with a beginning, middle and end and great structure. Very 'cool' but rewarding. GV Drinking range: 2017 - 2019 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Oct 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!
