Business Information

Our Story

Unique amongst South African wineries, more than three-quarters of the scenic farm has been preserved as natural habitat—an oasis where oak trees pepper the landscape, geese and ducks swim the dams, and caracal, duikers and hares have been spotted roaming the hills. The property includes eight hectares of grapevines, two hectares apple trees, half a hectare olive trees, a lake, four trout dams and an exquisite picnic area. The diversity of ecosystems on the estate encourages beneficial insects and a myriad of bird species, including raptors and resident owl pairs.

A recent addition to the farm is the greenhouse, where new trees and flowers are grown from seed. Over the course of three years over 2000 trees have been planted on Oneiric. Ensuring greater ecological richness of their property and an opportunity for visitors to share Oneiric’s breathtaking vistas through hospitality.

The Pascall’s call the farm home and welcome guests to enjoy their backyard through the Oneiric Tasting/Picnic facilities.

The vines are unique in that the slopes suit the varieties planted there, the cooler sites house the Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay and the warmer sites the red cultivars. The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay show great freshness and natural acidity and the red wines are of a fuller style with dark fruit and spice not generally encountered in the Elgin area.

Our wines showcase the typical character of the individual grape, which are representative of their terroir and produced in limited quantities. All our wines are well balanced, structured and of outstanding quality. They have depth and complexity to fully compliment fine cuisine.

Both the vineyards and the landscape combine to form the spectacular backdrop that together makes Oneiric “dreamy.”

Copper Theme

Our family's involvement in Copper mining inspired the unique labels.

Family Heritage

It is thanks to Matt’s involvement in Copper mining that the family decided to play on a Copper theme with the labels, each varietal plays on a different copper derivative or sulfide; from Fools Gold and Malachite to the rich blue of Azurite and the Copper colored Cousin Jack.

The result is a very metallic, stand-out, exquisitely beautiful label.

The Newly released First Quantum Grand Reserve plays homage to First Quantum Minerals, one of the world’s biggest copper mines.

The full copper label collection is a unique and somewhat daring move away from the common label which has tongues wagging and has literally taken the wine world by storm.

The labels depict a richness, exclusivity and quality which follows through in the wine.

Our Wines


A delightfully crisp and elegant Chardonnay that over-delivers on the palate. Fresh sea breeze, citrus pith and a velvety butter backed by well integrated-soft oaking.

A perfectly balanced wine with seamless integration of all components.

Oneiric produces white wines which are beautifully balanced on both the nose and the palate.

A beautiful summer wine enjoyed with or without food.

Double Gold CWSA 2016

The wonderful aged look of oxidised Malachite, seen on the roofs of distinction, complements the Oneiric Sauvignon Blanc.

A classic example of a unique expression cool climate Sauvignon Blanc.

The wine’s profile reveals one of Oneiric’s flagship varietals in all its splendor: an elegant, fragrant nose, with concentrated acidity, intensity, and freshness.

These wines have been aged in bottle for 3 years and the result is an elegantly soft and surprisingly fruit-driven wine. Lovely fresh cut grass backed by white peach, jasmine, litchi and a hint of fresh lime. A well-balanced wine with great mouthfeel (reminiscent of mango sorbet) and a long and seamless finish.

Will pair well with any summer day.

The golden yellow of the Chalcopyrite, a copper sulfide ore, sets off the warm glow of the Oneiric Chardonnay.

Elgin is perfect for growing Chardonnay. This grape varietal is known for its natural acidity and aging potential.

A Burgundian at heart, this Chardonnay boasts beautiful lime, turkish delight, crème brûlée and a light citrus pith. Delicious nuttiness and aromas of butterscotch and fine oak.

Steely minerality indicative of the terroir, with 8 months in 100% New French oak.

The deep blue of Azurite, an oxide of copper, symbolises the richness of Oneiric’s Shiraz.

This is a fantastic example of the Rhone varietal with a velvet palate and savory finish that leaves you wanting more.

The copper colour of the Cousin Jack is a rich blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, with a dash of Shiraz.

Cousin Jack was the name given to Cornish miners who left Cornwall in the 18th and 19th centuries for the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Brazil to become leaders in the mining world. Bringing with them the game of rugby.


Light fruit, zesty acidity for uncomplicated sipping.

Ripe dark berry notes with hints of cedar and cassis. Fine and dense tannins with ripe fruit structure. Mid cerise. Smokey red fruit aromas. Evolved and still evolving. Some savory fresh notes. Chewy and rustic but food-friendly and showing vinosity and persistence.

The wine has a lovely silky texture and well-integrated oak.

Matt calls this a “lunchtime” wine, Shan calls it an “anytime” wine.

Loosely based on First Quantum Minerals, the third biggest copper mines in the world – this grand Bordeaux blend needed a grand name to fit its contents.

50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Merlot.

This great wine is a rarity that presents a developed and complex nose with a diversity of aromas that make you want to swirl the glass and smell it over and over again.

Stunning nose, concentrated, intense, rich and structured with an endless finish.

Lovely cigar box, crème de cassis, violet, leather and raspberry with a fantastically complex palate structure: pencil lead and red meat with a refreshing menthe from the merlot and grippy tannins.

The finish is coherent with the nose, complex and long-lasting.

An exquisite limited edition from Elgin, where grapes develop a great natural acidity from the altitude at which they are grown. The wine profile is one of pure elegance and complexity.

This is a stunning example of a world-class wine.

With Matt Pascall’s involvement in the copper industry, it seemed fitting that in 2011 when we decided to take the wines to market, we play on a copper theme which we incorporated throughout our label design, with each label colour depicting a different copper sulfide or derivative.

The Copper Collection consists of:

  • Oneiric Sauvignon Blanc, a rich green malachite label.
  • Oneiric Chardonnay, a golden chalcopyrite label.
  • Oneiric Shiraz, a deep blue azurite label.
