Win a case of Catena Cabernet Franc and a £100 meat voucher from Swaledale Butchers

Sponsored feature: Having taken the decision earlier this year to cut back on the number of competitions we ran on the site* it’s been a while since we had one but I’m happy to say we have a cracker for you this month.

The prize - actually there are two prizes - is a case of cabernet franc wine from top Argentinian producer Catena Zapata and a £100 voucher from Swaledale Butchers in Yorkshire to spend on some delicious meat to accompany it.

Cabernet franc, which is one of the key grape varieties in red Bordeaux, is not as well known as malbec but makes similarly rich, lush reds.

The six bottle case includes 3 bottles of the DV Catena Cabernet Franc Tinto Historico 2020, 2 bottles of the Catena San Carlos Cabernet Franc 2019 and one bottle of the fabulous Nicolas Catena Zapata 2019, a Bordeaux blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec and 28% Cabernet Franc which sells for over £75. So pretty special. (Save that last bottle for a special occasion - it’ll keep for a good few years but the other wines will make great weekend drinking to share with friends.

I felt you’d probably want to team it with some great meat so managed to persuade an online butcher I really rate called Swaledale to add a £100 voucher to the prize.

You can use it to buy individual cuts such as this leg of pork roast which would make a great alternative to the Christmas turkey, experiment with less usual cuts such as their Jacob’s Ladder beef ribs and beef ossobuco or one of their meat boxes. (We can’t guarantee you’ll get it before Christmas, depending on what you order, but it would make a fabulous new year’s treat.)
