Our 2018 iteration of our rosé, “Four on the Flor” (previously known as “Pink Flag”) is an homage to both its process (aging under flor) and our love of house and disco. As we have refined our approach, and gained better understanding of what makes this site/variety/wine tick, we 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 (Sherry, Vin Jaune) married to the tropical exuberance of traditional Provencal rosé. This wine has really come into its own within the greater context of our lineup, and we love where it lands at the nexus of brain and body. RIYL: Mr. Fingers, Moodymann, Honey Dijon, Frankie Knuckles.
