I’m loving this design for 2009 R. Müller Riesling by Octavin. Also known as “bunny wine” and produced from grapes grown in the Landwein Rhine region of Germany and is a sweet reisling.
Octavin have a 3L range of octagonal boxed wines for their Home Wine Bar range which can be opened and drunk over a period of 4 weeks without degradation of quality. Aimed at the hosting at home market, I think you’ll appreciate the thought that has gone into this design. One box equals 4 bottles and at $24US a box this bunny wine works out to around $0.75 a glass.
Boxed wine has quite a notorious reputation here in New Zealand as a cheap way to get drunk. The last time I bought boxed wine, a certain someone ended up drinking the wine straight from the tap…for breakfast…washed down with sunscreen. I’m pretty sure that is not a serving suggestion.
