Wine of Week: Oldenburg Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Sunday lunch

Oldenburg Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon

Seeking a really big, elegant red for the Christmas table but don’t want to pay silly prices for unreliable claret? Be different with an oak-aged Cabernet Sauvignon from a boutique South African winery: intense, tannic and concentrated, with black fruits and hints of mint on the palate, yet still juicy on the finish. Game, rare roast beef or Stilton are in order here. If you put some aside, it will be even better next year. £21.50, slurp.co.uk; £22.60, bbr.com
