GODELLO

2017 Maga Karma do Sil

Grapes Godello
Colour White
Origin Spain, Ribeira Sacra
ABV 13%

There was a time when the almost impossibly steep valley of the river Sil was terra incognita except to locals undertaking heroic viticulture. That time is coming to an end as the world discovers the quality of the Godello (and Mencia) grown here. Luscious but structured dry white that seems more Burgundian than Spanish. Excellent value. 13% Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Nov 2018)

Peachy, richly textured with zesty pure flavours – this glorious Godello is must-buy wine.Olly Smith, The Mail on Sunday(Oct 2018)

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 business partner have gone their separate ways – with Antonio & Francisco 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 wine-making and he is certainly making the best wines we have seen yet!
