Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts John Platter -

Offering remarkable value, complex 2016 vintage (Cabernet 78%/Shiraz 22%) blend seduces with hints of cinnamon, aniseed, pepper and fresh sage, mélange of bright red fruit. Well-knit after one year in French Oak, with filigree tannins.

88 pts James Suckling -

A spicy and juicy red with meat, berry and hints of cedar. Medium body, savory finish. Some funk. 80% cabernet sauvignon and 20% shiraz. Drink now. Screw cap.



Winemaker Notes

(50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 50% Shiraz) Black Pearl Vineyards is a single unirrigated vineyard on the slopes of Paarl Mountain. The 4.5 hectares of Shiraz (planted 1998) and 3 hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon (planted 1999) thrive on deep, well-drained Oakleaf soil. The high trellising system, severe pruning and canopy management are all managed to ensure low-yielding, stress free, phenolically ripe fruit. The adjoining land, we have made into a nature conservation area to preserve the last 4% of remaining renosterveld in the world, so being environmentally friendly is of utmost importance for us. Pest control is monitored rather than spraying chemicals, and our spray program for mildews uses chemicals with the least negative impact on the earth.
