Packaged in a little green Tetrapak, this is a very nice white wine. It’s totally dry, and the lime and grapefruit flavors are balanced with ultra-crisp acidity. Great with grilled veggies, sole with a squeeze of lemon, and Asian fare.
Bandit’s wines come in one liter cartons, so you get an extra one third of a bottle, and also do a lot of good things for the environment, as the packaging relentlessly explains. Inside—well, rather plain. Light flavors of apple and tea, a watery midpalate, and a lightly sugary finish.
Here’s a wine in a box that shows nice Chardonnay character. It has peach, pear and apple flavors, with crisp acidity that makes it clean and vibrant. Some boxed wines are hard to open, but this one has an easy screwcap.
