David Chandler: "As far as David is concerned, it’s as German as wearing socks in your sandals and equally as appealing, but in this episode, Jason plies him with five compelling and zesty reasons why he’s just plain wrong about Riesling. From Alsace to Western Australia via the Mosel valley, these slender-shouldered, bottle-green beauties from Leon Beyer, Forest Hill, Willems-Willems, and Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt, will not only lend character to a kartoffelpuffer but jazz up a Rogan Josh and titivate a Thom Kha Kai, too. Yes, when it comes to pairing a Prawn Tikka Bhuna, try putting away your over-fizzed, industrial lager and rocking a Riesling instead, but steer clear of the supermarket varieties, if you can. It’s a grape with ‘issues,’ says Jason and requires the dedication of small producers, like the ones above, to do it justice. Zum Wohl!"
