Cherries, Plum, Peonies, Herbaceous, Mineral, Lithe, Finesse


2021 marks the fourth release of Classico d’Osoyoos, a single vineyard, Sangiovese dominant Tuscan blend.

Classico d’Osoyoos is our attempt at building an old-school red wine, think classic claret or pre-modernization Tuscan reds. A wine that harnesses the lithe and ethereal qualities and celebrates these qualities over concentration and body. If you’re a fan of the more elegant, linear and old-school styling of Chianti and coastal Tuscan reds, then Classico d’ Osoyoos is for you.

    The 2021 Classico d’Osoyoos is the fourth release for this single vineyard, half sangiovese, fully Tuscan inspired blend. The other varieties are 18 percent cabernet sauvignon, (17) merlot and (15) cabernet franc which means the motherland influence is Bolgheri (more than Maremma). It’s a sangiovese thing but the Bordeaux varieties are instrumental in bringing the brushy savour and dark fruit to light. All that said it is the single Selona vineyard located within the Osoyoos Lake District West that determines this blend. Vines are just now coming into their sweet spot and while there is a hint of smoulder you could not imagine anything but clarity and precision within and without the Classico. The art of the blend is imagined and captured with inventiveness and motivation. Really well conceived and made despite the challenge of the season and harvest. Drink 2025-2028.
