If you’re a fan of the aromatic, white-wine spectrum, then get your laughing gear around this ravishingly good riesling from the Pligers family at Kuen Hof estate. They’ve been producing wine since the 12th century in Eisacktal in Südtirol, Italy’s northernmost wine region. Kaiton is a celtic word for the area surrounding the estate, which has schist and quartzite soils responsible for the electric minerality, lime peel and gorgeous green apple flavours in the wine. Dry, balanced and bursting with personality, Italian riesling is my new favourite thing. Drink 2018 to 2022.
