PAZO DA MAGA
2020 Karma do Sil
|Origin||Spain, Ribeira Sacra|
Now labelled 'Pazo da Maga' after a certain famous Rioja producer thought it sounded too similar to their name, this Godello is on a roll and better than ever. Wonderful texture - almost Puligny-esque, but never too much - this is delightfully fresh and light on its feet. Firm white peachiness with a mineral backdown, balanced with a gorgeous core of lime, this is a cracker. Delicious on its own or with fresh seafood. L&S (Jun 2021)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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!
