Odinstal are one of Germany's finest producers of riesling. A biodynamic estate (established 2004), they have been highly sought after for their purity and complexity, minerality and interest. Cult wines, set in a unique pocket of Pfalz, high above the regular vineyard line, deep in a verdant forest.
Vulkan is the riesling off the volcanic soils, and true to that planting of vines the riesling from here has this almost pumice-stone like mineral quality to the wine. Lots of lime and lemon, crushed green apple, blackcurrant and exotic spice too. A racy, firm and compact riesling expression with grace and power in spades. And wow, so pure feeling. Fantastic. Breath-taking stuff.
