Dorrance Wines – “Cuvée Anais” Chardonnay 2012
Born and raised in France, from a Calvados family, Christophe Durand moved to Cape Town in 1995. Initially working as a supplier of premium French wine barrels, he became more and more involved in winemaking, eventually combining his knowledge and passion for fines wines to create Dorrance Wines.
A strong proponent of tradition, Christophe’s philosophy is to interact as little as possible with the grapes, leaving each cuvee to reflect the elegance of its terroir. The Dorrance portfolio includes stunning vineyards from across the Western Cape.
40% fermented in new French oak, and aged for a further 12 months. A nose of cold cream and buttered popcorn, with a bright and fantastic acidity that brings to life juicy flavours of melon, white flowers and lemon peel.
