Spira Xinomavro Solera Ligas, superb natural wine from Greece, Xinomavro grape, unique flavours, rich and very complex from long ageing in a Solera system from vintages 2012-2018. Ktima Ligas top white made from the red Xinomavro grape and vinified en blanc with then long ageing in a solera system is a unique expression of a rare grape and a special wine maker. Made from red grapes with a little skin contact, Spira behaves like an orange wine but is technically a Blanc de Noir, a white wine made from red grapes, the tiny amount of colour from slight contact and ageing in Solera gives it orange wine colour and characteristics. The Ligas family really is doing incredible things at their little winery in Pella, the Cuvee continue to arrive every year, each one that bit more experimental, each one more complex and diverse than the last and each one always equally delicious. Spira is no exception, a stunning wine for high quality seafood.
