Doddies Red Blend


My Name’5 Doddie Foundation has been an inspirational response to a tragic personal diagnosis. The response from the rugby family and beyond has been magnificent.

And now, fellow international Lock forward and wine maker Schalk Burger has joined in the effort, creating a wine for Doddie to raise funds for the foundation.

Doddie’5 Red Blend is a Bordeaux blend made from their own vineyards in the Groenberg ward of Wellington in South Africa where soils are predominantly decomposed granite.

Paying homage to the #5 shirt worn by both Doddie and Schalk in their international days, the wine is a blend of five varieties: Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Mourvèdre and Petit Verdot.
