About This Wine

It is quite a sight after a rainfall.

On the slopes of South Africa’s Paarl Mountain, Paarl Rock resembles a black pearl anytime it rains, and since black pearls are rare, Mary-Lou Nash felt it was the perfect name for her boutique wine estate — a place where she would craft rare and wonderful wines.

As the co-owner, viticulturist and winemaker for Black Pearl, Nash has complete control over winemaking. She is eminently qualified for the task, having earned a wine evaluation certificate from Stellenbosch University, and now holding the prestigious title of Cape Wine Master.

For her sustainable wine known as “The Mischief Maker,” Nash chose a blend of 85% Syrah and 15% Mourvedre. “These varieties meld beautifully into a smorgasbord of aromatic herbs and spice,” she says. “It offers lovely concentration in a fairly dry and classic style.” It’s big yet perfectly balanced — a true rarity of a wine.
