Details

Roditis Jason Ligas Organic white wine from Pella, Greece, Natural wine, low sulphur, outstanding flavours, unique wine. 100% Roditis from Ligas, a superb young Greek wine producer making fabulous natural wines in the Pella region. The 100% Roditis wine made from the indigenous grape of the Pella is a wine that intrigues the palate. The variety was highly valued in ancient Greece due its ability to ripen late whilst maintaining its acidity. It was very susceptible to the Phylloxera that swept Europe in the 19th century and its plantings hugely decreased. Many producers now discount the variety and use it for Retsina but in the right hands, it is capable of producing magical wines with a unique character. This natural wine from Roditis has lovely nutty, mango and exotic fruit aromas and flavours with subtle resinous notes and underlying earthiness. This is an amazing wine for washed rind cheese and richer fish and white meat dishes


Since ancient times, the region of Pella, situated in northern Greece, has been associated with wine, and the wines of Ktima Ligas capture the essence of this historic area. Jason Ligas, together with Thomas and Melissanthe, took over this estate with the intention of transforming 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. They have since turned their attention to other local grape varieties that have been more or less forgotten, including Kydonitsa and Xinomavro. They've also revived a number of winemaking techniques, such as amphorae and ageing under flor yeast. The soils are loamy, sand with very good drainage and the natural ecosystem in the environment is expressed in these stunning wines. They are all 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.
