£30 from each case goes directly to the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to fund much needed research into MND.
Doddie collaborated with fellow rugby international and wine maker Schalk Burger to create this wine to raise funds for the foundation.
Doddie’5 Red Blend is a Bordeaux blend (Cab Franc, Cab Sauv, Merlot, Mourvedre & Petit Verdot) made in the Groenberg ward of wellington South Africa from grapes grown in Schalk’s own vineyard. Paying homage to the number 5 shirt worn by both Doddie and Schalk in their international days.
Maturation in third filled barriques has softened the wine but it retains remarkable freshness. Medium-bodied with elegant red fruit, it is already a delight to drink now with its soft, push, juicy mid palate but has the structure and acidity to age.
