Details

Lamda Vin de Grece Jason Ligas, natural wine, Assyrtiko, Roditis, full bodied, soft enveloping stone fruits, wild herbs, notes of balsamic and pine, fantastic with Greek foods. The blended white made by Jason has a little more body and intensity than the straight Roditis and the Assyrtiko adds more complexity to the wine. Notes of green apple, quince with a creaminess and subtle hints of mirin which add depth and interest. The warm stone fruits and aromas of Greek countryside are there and the body and depth of flavour, the hallmark of Ligas wines make this a delicious wine for rich foods and strong cheeses. Worth trying for anyone who enjoys a layered Chenin Blanc and is looking for something more interesting. This wine is unfined and unfiltered, and has no added sulphites.


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.
