Winemaker Notes

Phenolically ripe grapes are handpicked, cooled before a gentle crushing, open fermented in 600kg lots, hand punched down three times daily, and put into the barrel at 5 degrees Balling to finish fermentation in barrel. The wine is racked a few times before bottling a year later and is further aged in bottle for a year on average before release. They feel they have a special site and their goal is to bottle what comes from the vineyard. We add only yeast and minimal sulfur to the wine. Their goal is a limited edition, terroir driven wine that is drinkable now as well as able to mature further in the bottle.

About Black Pearl Winery

Black Pearl wines are made in the vineyard and the focus is on producing limited quantities of high quality grapes. From berry to bottle is a complete hands-on family experience.

We are not planning to substantially increase our production, preferring to remain diligent in our pursuit of wines of distinction.

The name “Black Pearl” was inspired by the fact that the vineyard is situated on the slopes of Paarl Mountain, and Paarl Rock resembles a black pearl after it has rained. Black pearls also have rarity value. The name of our blend “Oro” comes from the God Oro, King of the Firmament, who gave the black pearl as a gift to the ocean.
