The Oddbins Take

Like so many notable Germans before him; Kant, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer and David Hasselhoff, Alexander Gysler is a bit of a philosopher. We are of course aware that the Hoff was born in the US, despite his German heritage, but it felt wrong to leave him off the list given that he is obviously the most significant intellectual on that list; Kant had some lovely ideas about ethics, but did he topple the Berlin Wall with his music? Nope.

Better than both however is Alexander Gysler, taking over the family estate when his father was unfortunately taken seriously ill, he initially worked with very conventional winemaking practices. However, after a few years he came to the realisation that his wines were the same year on year, like an industrial product. He quickly changed to biodynamic practices, and believes everything from the energy of his vineyards, the health of his family and of course the quality of his wines are at levels far higher than had he stuck with conventional winemaking. When approaching his sparkling wine, with a nose that is such a pure expression of Riesling but on the palate is reminiscent of a super-premium Blanc de Blancs traditional method, you’d be brave to suggest Alexander isn’t on to something.
