The Amplify 2021 Four on the Flor Rosé is produced from early-picked organic Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine aged under flor for 5 months in tank (past years have been neutral oak). The wine is super bright and juicy but with savory notes from the flor. It is drinking beautifully. Pair it with spicy foods and big flavors, it can take them!
About Flor: As always, the Amplify Rosé is aged entirely under flor like Sherry or Vin Jaune from the Jura. Aging under flor not only encourages more savory textures, it also contributes its own flavors such as roasted nuts, sea salt, and bruised apple. Relatively brief stays under flor, in this case 5 months, contribute to the wine’s character without overriding a sense of place or the wine’s inherent fruit.
