PAZO DA MAGA
2021 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 seems to go from strength to strength. Gorgeously textured, but never too weighty - so bright and fresh - this is a delight. Pithy lime and a firm white peachiness are beautifully balanced by a crisp mineral streak. Delicious on its own or with fresh seafood. L&S (May 2022)
*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!
What better way to help celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee (and the long weekend) than with this specially selected case and beautiful cookbook.
From the aptly named Platine 1er Cru Extra Brut NV Champagne from Nicolas Maillart, to the (tongue firmly in cheek here) your Maga-sty Godello and not forgetting (getting seriously tenuous now) some Le Petit Roy-al, there is something for all palates.
Being serious for a moment though, this is a fabulous collection of wines that should make any (street) party go with a twist and a twirl.
