Vintage Notes: This is Amplify's 7th vintage of 22-year-old Carignane from Camp 4 Vineyard. Cameron and Marlen Porter fell in love with Carignane's wild iterations in the Roussillon, though the way they choose to interpret the grape is inspired equally by Poulsard from the Jura. The 2019 vintage is showing similar to the 2018 vintage--delicate and endlessly chuggable. 2019 was another cold year, reflected in the bright acid and lithe texture the wine possesses.
Winemaking Notes: The Carignane grapes were pressed after 7 days of spontaneous carbonic fermentation. The wine then aged in 100% neutral oak for 9 months. The wine was not fined or filtered. An extremely low addition of sulfites was made.
Tasting Notes: There is plenty of spice and aromatic depth, with a weightless mouthfeel. Chill it down for summer patio drinking.
