Characteristics

Raffes is a “nome di fantasia” (just to remind you that you’re dealing with what is essentially an Italian portfolio ;). It is the upper outcrop of the great gray slate Falkenlay vineyard in the Marienburg 1. Lage or grand cru, which comprises the oldest vines in Falkenlay. Every vintage is characterized by the most structured and concentrated wines from the estate.

Raffes was individuated by Clemens in 1992? and has been separately vinified ever since due to its highly personal characteristics. It is the strongest personality Riesling in their selection. Definitely not a wine for beginners, with some residual sugar to boot, which in this case and any definitive non-dessert wine case, combines perfectly to create the most complex Riesling that I have had. And it’s delicious.

2010 was a great vintage and this wine is contagiously drinkable now. However a great vintage means that if you keep some for your retirement (even you young people out there) the rewards will be beyond description.
