Wine of the week: Botham 80 series Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon

I’m not a big fan of celebrity-endorsed wines and am indeed underwhelmed by the two basic wines in the new Botham range which are on sale in both Morrisons and Waitrose but this slightly more expensive Coonawarra Cabernet, which is on offer at £7.99 in Waitrose at the moment, is a really good buy.

It’s a big, suitably beefy 14.5% red with that unmistakeable, cassis and eucalyptus Coonawarra character and would be a great partner for grilled beef and lamb (which Botham has also promoted in the past).

It looks pretty handsome too - a good bottle to give a any cricket fan on their birthday or for Father's Day which is only a few weeks away.

* if you're wondering what the number 64 means on the bottle, the shot was taken at the Waitrose tasting where it was no. 64 in the line-up.

Picked this up in Waitrose on offer for about £11. Probably the best wine we've had for ages. Perfectly complmented an amazing rib eye steak. We finished the bottle in 45 mins. If we'd known just how good this was we'd have bought 3 bottles!
Well-done Ian !
