The Oddbins Take

Kiefer Sutherland, Gary Oldman, Ray Winstone… bad boys we love to love, who aren’t afraid to rock a few boats. Dirk Niepoort was himself a bit of a tearaway in the wine-making world, but, like our Gary in Batman Begins, he has achieved respect from all quarters for being brilliant at his craft. Doda combines the black fruit and minerality of Douro fruit with the lifted freshness of Touriga grown on granite. Built with the rugged masculine structure to age handsomely, but drinking splendidly now, Doda would add a distincly bad boy thrill to a feast involving great slabs of red meats and mature cheeses.

With Doda, Dirk Niepoort has made a post-modern interpretation of the very old tradition of blending Douro wines (for power) and Dão (for freshness).
