The name? Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald had many incredible collaborations together; their impeccable brilliance at improvisation was always on display. The sense of grace, balance, and precision that these two amazing artists achieved are what Amplify strives for with this blend of Viognier and Riesling. They said it best: “It don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got that swing.” The Viognier provides textural breadth along with elevated tropical aromatics. The tension of the Riesling is very much present, keeping it tight and focused.
