Details

IGP Macedoine Gaia Pella Amphora Ktima Ligas 2017 ( Orange Wine)natural wine from Greece, rich, complex, unique, low in sulphur, stunning flavours. The Gaia stands alone as the Ligas range's top wine, there is depth due to the unique flavours of the Kydonitsa variety but also the skin contact and then on top, there is a sublime level of freshness and finesse which makes this complex wine stunning to drink.
Notes of pine, herbs, fresh fruits, dried stones fruits like apricot and fresh white peach, a medicinal balsamic character tickles the nose and the length of finish is amazing. For orange wines fanatics along with other top producers of the style, like Radikon, Skerk, and the Pinot Gris from Beru, this wine is a must.



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 and his Sister Meli continued the work of their Father Thomas and set about turning the normally dull Roditis grape into something very special. By converting to natural farming in the 80s after following the ideas set out by a renowned Japanese Masanobu Fukuoka (1913-2008) whose approach to agriculture was called, ‘do nothing'. Fukuoka – whose philosophy has been described as ‘Steiner without cow horns’ – was a Japanese researcher in plant pathology who subsequently became an experimental farmer and promoter of natural farming. At Ligas by reducing the yield he was able to express the terroir and show the potential of their indigenous grapes that are 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 his stunningly fresh and complex white wines. The reds are pretty rare and only made in good years but are also wines to be savoured. The wines all carry a unique personality and expressive aroma which we have come to call 'The Ligas Nose!'
