Wine Profile

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 the past decade, Portfolio has routinely won top accolades from wine competitions and wine critics alike: a proven chart-topper.

The 2021 vintage offers an integrated mix of cassis and blueberry with cedar box and fresh tobacco. The palate is filled with red fruits, cocoa powder, and cedar with notes of smoked cherries and tobacco leaf. The wine has great structure and texture with a long spicy finish. Drink from 2025-2032

winemaking Notes

The 2021 vintage combines the five classic varietals: 50% Merlot, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Malbec, and 4% Petit Verdot to create a multilayered, complex wine.

Using double sorting tables to sort grapes first by cluster and then by berry allows us to put meticulous attention on using only the best grapes in our wines. The whole berry fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Portfolio sees 21 months in French oak barrels with 38% new French oak and 62% second fill French oak.

vintage Notes

The 2021 growing season is one that will be remembered for a long time. The season was marked by intense heat in the Okanagan. The resulting budbreak gave us berries that grew to a small size and the clusters were loose. These small berries had a high concentration of flavour, colour, and tannins.

The vintage started slow but by mid summer the vines were progressing well. The crop was light in general which allowed the quality to really shine. Loosely formed bunches with smaller than average berry size, allowed for full sunlight penetration with resultant development of intense fruit flavours.


Sourced from multiple sites in Oliver and from the Perfect Hedge Vineyard in Osoyoos.
