Gewurztraminer Les Folastries Josmeyer, biodynamic wine, off dry, spicy, delicate style, aromatic but elegant, superb food wine. A delicious biodynamic wine named after Ronsard's collection of poems Livret de Folastries, meaning 'book of follies'. Grown on the flats between Wintzenheim and Turckheim, known for producing softer, sensual wines (in the words of the winery themselves), the vines are over 35 years old. Les Folastries Gewurz tends towards the drier style with approx 7 grams residual sugar. On the nose, classic varietal notes of Lychee combine with north African spices like Cardamom, Coriander and Clove. The palate is drier than the nose would indicate, very spicy but supremely fresh, precise, a style which typifies the Josmeyer estate and the elegance and freshness makes it superb with food.
