"Dome is the highest peak on the Helderberg Mountain which surrounds the town of Somerset West in Stellenbosch. Creating a natural amphitheatre where the Lourensford Estate is situated, the wildlife and plants that inhabit the Dome overlook the valley below where the Lourens River runs through. The Chardonnay vines for this elegant wine grow here at 656 feet above sea level, chosen for its close proximity to the river. Chardonnay grapes tend to prefer low lying, cooler areas for proper dormancy and bud break, making this an ideal location. Trellised 6–10 year old vines are set in Tukulu soils on a western facing slope." - Winery Notes

Lourensford "The Dome" Chardonnay 2014 Tasting Notes

"Pineapple, melon and orange blossom aromas lead to flavors of white peach with a caramel, nutty undertone that lingers on the textured, decadent finish. The natural fermentation provides a vibrant, linear acidity and substantial core with just enough layered sweetness, resulting in a round, balanced palate." - Winery Notes
