When I think of boxed wine, I think of Franzia. If I’m not mistaken, I remember my mom and aunts drinking the White Zinfandel. No offense, Mom, but not my idea of the perfect wine.
As I’m sure you know, boxed wines have come a long way and there are some very good options out there. Heck, I believe there are now Target stores in Ohio that carry certain varieties.
A while back, I tried Bota Box Riesling 2012 and was very impressed.
It was not as sugary as I thought it would be. It had bright floral aromas and flavors of pear and green apple. It is a tad sweet, but nicely balanced. Crisp and refreshing (especially on these steamy summer days) and very easy to drink. Delicious!
The 3-liter box has the same amount as four regular bottles of wine, so for $18-$20 you cannot beat it.
