  1. Great Wines for Under $10: Boxhead 2011 Chardonnay

    In another week or so, summer will officially be over (as if we needed to be reminded by the cooler forecast) and our thoughts turn to Autumn and wines geared towards shorter days and chilly nights. The 2011 Boxhead Chardonnay may be the ideal seasonal transition white wine.

    This is a medium-bodied Chardonnay from Australia and is oak free. Don’t be fooled into thinking it is thin and unimaginative like a good number of un-oaked Chardonnays because there is plenty of attractive fruit smell and taste. The first whiff of lemon is immediately followed by spiced apple and subtle peach which will put you in the Fall frame of mind. This wine tastes of baked apple with lemon zest and a lingering flavor of baking spice.

    The 2011 Boxhead Chardonnay is a very good value at $9.99. Try it with your favorite shellfish, perhaps even a chowder if you are ready for that. After all it is just about Fall.

  2. Great Wines for Under $10: Boxhead Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    So you say you miss some of your heavier weight reds throughout this particularly warm summer? Are you getting a bit white wine worn? You say you love crisp, citrusy and refreshing but enough already? Ok then, ‘cause you’re not alone. Go ahead and think ripe, rich, and red even if it is 85 degrees outside. Be a rebel!

    We have the perfect wine for you. Boxhead 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bit of a rebel itself due to the fact that this Australian Cab is quite different from your typical California variety. This Cab will remind you of a Shiraz, but it has some significant differences as well. There is a lovely aroma of fresh baked blueberry pie and a smidgen of clove. Then you take a sip and dark berries burst in your mouth followed by more Christmas spice and a tart finish of strawberry rhubarb.

    This is a wonderful surprise for $9.99. Pair this wine with sausage and mushroom pizza. So be a rebel, eat pizza and drink Australian Cab when it’s 85 degrees!
