Details

Assyrtiko Maison Viticole Ligas Vin de Grece, natural Greek white wine, full bodied, bright. Assyrtiko is a local grape variety known for making high alcohol, high acid wines that have bright, citrussy fruit characteristics and a strong minerality. Jason Ligas and the team bring their own unique slant to this grape, working naturally with low sulphur, wild yeasts and maturation in old oak. This produces an expressive and complex wine balanced with trademark freshness. The wine is unfiltered and unfined.


Since ancient times, the region of Pella in the Peloponnese, situated in northern Greece, was associated with wine making and described as the mother of wine, where vines abound. Jason Ligas took over this small vineyard from his parents and set about turning the normally dull Roditis grape into something very special. By converting to natural farming and reducing the yield he was able to express the terroir and the show the potential of a grape that is normally over cropped and used for cheap jug wine. The soils are loamy, sand with very good drainage and the natural environment is expressed in this stunningly fresh and complex white wine. The Cru wine is in tiny quantity, only 400 bottles of this wine are produced, grab it while you can! The other wines made by the Ligas estate are equally as impressive and offer a different spectrum of flavour to the traditional, well known grape varieties of France, Italy and Spain. Try these wines, they are really something.
