Cape Classics added to its line of premium wines with its Lourensford “The Dome” Chardonnay. Available in New York through MS Walker, and launching in other major markets this spring, “The Dome” joins Cape Classics’ award-winning portfolio of more than 20 brands of South African and French offerings. As the highest peak of South Africa’s Helderberg Mountain, the Dome creates a natural amphitheater where the Lourensford vineyards are situated and served as the inspiration for the new Chardonnay, the company says. The result of the combination of Tukulu soils and this unique microclimate is a full-bodied Chardonnay with a palate of tropical fruit with a caramel, nutty undertone. The 2013 Lourensford “The Dome” Chardonnay is available at a suggested of $19.99.
