2018 Maga Karma do Sil
|Origin||Spain, Ribeira Sacra|
This wine seems to get better and better. Full of exciting juicy fruit. Bright and crisp - but with wonderful texture. Classic Godello lines but this has so much more energy than almost all others we have tasted. Lime pith some firm white fleshed stone fruit and crisp mineral line keep this joyous. A delicious aperitif or perfect with a light lunch or fresh seafood. Best yet from the team here. L&S (Feb 2019)

Youthful, cool-fermented estery nose with generic pineapple and citrus character. Well made, with a glossy, medium-full body, but aromatically anonymous. Drinking range: 2019 - 2020 Rating: 16 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Aug 2019)
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!
