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 cuvée to reflect the elegance of its terroir. The Dorrance portfolio includes stunning vineyards from across the Western Cape.
Tasting Notes... This seductive red has a perfumed nose of violets, spice and purple fruits. The medium to full-bodied, food friendly palate is finely textured with firm but approachable tannins and as fresh, lingering finish.
