Is there another grape that provokes so much ire and desire in equal measure. We in the trade love it - google it and you'll get a link to a dire stuff article entitled "The Wine that winemakers drink" but many consumers just don't understand it. How sweet is it some ask - as sweet as it tastes is usually my answer as the numbers, more often than none, lie.

We are going to taste through 8 wines from around the globe, wines that wines that range from desert-dry to tooth-tinglingly sweet, wines that range from uber-traditional to ultra-modern. With this tasting, we will look at different regional and stylistic expressions, where the grape has come from, where it's going and ask the question... Does Riesling even need defending?
