Bota Box Chardonnay is a-ok.

Bota Box Chardonnay reviewed on Winewaves & More.
  • For under a buck a glass you don't necessarily expect to be transcended into heaven on the wings of angels. That would probably be too much for most evenings anyway. Any of us at any time may find ourselves in a super-affordable mood or mode. Or maybe we find ourselves with just enough energy left after a long week to tap the Bota Box in the fridge. Too tired even to twist a cap off, let alone use a corkscrew.
  • Bota Box Chardonnay is fresh, crisp, vibrant, with a little bit of oak in the nose but more towards the citrusy and green apple side on the tongue. 13% ABV. This would work well as a base for white sangria. I dipped a Celestial Seasonings watermelon-lime tea bag into the wine for a few moments and added a chunk of chilled watermelon to transform it. Bag-in-box. Local price/3 Liter: 19.
