Odinstal Riesling 120 N.N. is a soil-blended Riesling at 120 meters (N.N. is an abbreviation for Normal-Null or Sea-Level). It’s fermented trocken, and picked early to get the alcohol around 11%. Smokey, often cumin scented, with succulent yellow and orange fruits; the mouthfeel has real presence and weight; and a tapered finish, zingy star fruit and lime oil. Textbook Pfalz wine, but with less alcohol, and more nuance on the nose (just 30 mg/l added at bottling).

Odinstal is the Pfalz outlier, a leading biodynamic winery and grand cru monopole, all nestled in a raised valley that lies on the edge of an 1 extinct volcano. The old German name of Odisntal, Odensthal, means ‘Valley of Odes,’ and there’s a growing chorus of wine lovers, both natural and fine, that have good reason to be singing odes to Odinstal.
