Amplify's 2018 iteration of rosé, Four on the Flor (previously known as Pink Flag), is an homage to both its process (aging under flor) and their love of house and disco music. Cameron and Marlen feel its spirit now owes more to the throb, sensuality, and dirty funk of these genres than the jagged edge of punk. 50% aged under flor (actually slightly more than that this year), 50% topped-up, it possesses the salty, nutty, mineral intensity of flor-aged wine (think sherry and vin jaune) married to the tropical exuberance of traditional Provencal rosé. This wine has really come into its own within the greater context of the lineup.
