A blind trust is a financial trust in which the executors have full discretion over the assets, and the trust beneficiaries have no knowledge of the holdings of the trust. In this case, our Blind Trust is a wine in which the winemaker has full discretion over the blend, so you’ll just have to trust us.
The Blind Trust is the second label of our big Bordeaux inspired blends. It’s robust taste profile and affordable pricing make it a solid investment.
INSIDER TIP: Blind taste the Blind Trust and try to guess the varietals before disclosing the assets which are kept under wrap and seal of the capsule.
Syrah has become a powerful varietal for BC winegrowers, both in terms of its success in growing well in the south Okanagan, and for what it has been delivering in the glass. 100% estate grown on our Perfect Hedge vineyard in Osoyoos, the style is inspired by Cote Rotie in Northern Rhone, blending 95% Syrah with 5% Viognier. This classic technique gives the nose a floral lift and softens the pepper note ever so slightly.
INSIDER TIP - 22% of this wine is not just aged, but also fermented in French oak puncheons, which imparts silky tannins and a lush roundness to the Syrah.
Pinot Gris is one of the darling varietals of the Okanagan Valley. It ripens easily and consistently produces an enjoyable, fruit forward yet food friendly wine.
INSIDER TIP: Partially fermented in a concrete egg creates amazing mouthfeel and texture.
Viognier grows at our Perfect Hedge Vineyard in Osoyoos. An hour south of the Naramata Bench winery site, this vineyard is hotter and provides the extra heat units that Viognier requires to ripen fully. Viognier is a unique white varietal combining the weightiness on the palate of Chardonnay and the amazing floral aromatics of Gewürztraminer.
Insider Tip: The trick with Viognier is to get optimal ripeness without losing acidity, thus we combine two separate pick dates.
Just like a finely balance stock portfolio, putting together a blended wine takes finesse and judgement so that the experience of the whole will be greater than the sum of the individual parts. Our Portfolio is a wine that marries the art and science of winemaking with a blend of Bordeaux varietals. For over a decade, Portfolio has routinely won top accolades from wine competitions and wine critics alike: a proven chart-topper.
INSIDER TIP: Blending is a complex art to find the balance between the multitude of dimensions including 100 different barrels of 12 different vineyard blocks across 5 grape varietals.

One of the most secretive practices on Wall Street is the use of dark pools, which are off-exchange platforms that let traders buy and sell stocks anonymously. Similarly, David kept this traditional Port under the radar (even from Cynthia), using Merlot grapes sourced from the Naramata Bench.
