Black Pearl


Black Pearl

After completing my first vintage in 2001, I had to come up with a name for the wine as I couldn’t pronounce the name of the farm Rhenosterkop (“rhino head” in English).

The granite outcrop of Paarl Mountain glistens black after the rains, making Black Pearl the perfect name for a wine produced on the slopes of the mountain. And yes, Black Pearl Wine preceded the pirate movies (although I would love to sail around the world with Jack Sparrow)!

All my wines have scored 90+ points on numerous occasions at the Decanter World Wine Awards and with wine critics such as Wine Enthusiast, Robert Parker and the Platter’s Guide.

This is my core range of 3 wines, and some years I will make a straight Shiraz, Mourvèdre or Grenache.
