Oneiric Sauvignon Blanc 2010 92+ Points

For a relatively new producer in Elgin, Oneiric is certainly making waves, in a very positive way, as previously reviewed, I believe their Cabernet Sauvignon have all the hallmarks to be amogst South Africa’s best, we just need to see upcoming vintages how they fared and if they will maintain the very high standards, here is another revelations, this is an outstanding Sauvignon, and since I reviewed all samples blind, I was convinced this was a 2013 vintage, to my surprise this is a 4+ years old wine, which shows no sign of wrinkles, yes I have tasted numerous Sauvignon from Elgin, from established producers in the valley, but none have shown such concentration and purity and stamina as pristinely preserved, at this age, wow, seek it out it is super table friendly, a true pur sang
