Bota Box Riesling 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Nice intensity here with floral, tomato, and lime oil notes. This is gently sweet, and fairly rich with a bit-o-honey on entry followed by soft golden apple and apricot flavors spritzed with some lime. The finish shows a bit more sweetness and a nice dusty honeycomb edge with plenty of sugar-enhanced length. Certainly quaffable if a touch dull and heavy. 83pts

Great Wine Shouldn't Cost the Earth   Premium wine in a box? You bet! Bota Box produces premium California wine in 3-liter box and 500ml Tetra Pak, both made from environmentally-friendly packaging. Bota Box 3L is packaged in 100% recyclable, unbleached, post-consumer fiber printed with soy-based inks. Using state of the art FlexTap™ technology, our wine is kept fresh for up to six weeks after opening, allowing consumers to enjoy a glass of our award-winning wine without worrying about waste or spoilage. Bota Box offers nine popular 3-liter wines: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Shiraz, Old Vine Zinfandel, and a red blend called RedVolution.   Lightweight Bota 500ml Tetra Paks boast a smaller carbon footprint than the equivalent amount of 750ml glass bottles. The smart, alternative packaging and size reduce greenhouse gasses by 75% and waste by 50%, cut fuel emissions due to its lighter shipping weight, and are produced primarily from paper which is a renewable resource. Our 500ml Tetra Paks are available in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Grigio, Chardonnay, Old Vine Zinfandel and Moscato. Read less
