Looking at the package, the first thought that entered our silly heads was, “Hey, it’s a juice box for big people!”
Which is sorta true. The 500 ml container fits in a brown bag or brief case with ease yet carries two-thirds of a bottle of wine in it. “But won’t it leak?” you ask. Well, we had no leaks despite storing a CalNaurale on its side for two weeks. So we doubt it would drip if you tucked it into your lunch container or jacket pocket for a time.
What’s inside was a pleasant surprise. This is no oak bomb—no, it is a French-style Chardonnay that tastes like wine and shows an apple note. The 500 ml. size can be had for $7 or $8. (Rating ****)
