This is the first time I've seen an individual juice carton box of wine and thought it was only a Japanese thing, but apparently some Australian companies have started selling them too.

This is a small, 180ml box and the wine is drunk through a straw.

It's a full bodied wine and compared to the white wine version is actually drinkable (although barely).

It has a very Japanese wine taste to it, very berry like and fruity. Not too dry.

I wouldn't buy this again unless I was really in need of a box carton of wine, but that doesn't happen too often.

Still it was kinda drinkable, at a push.

I have to agree with your score. It was /barely/ drinkable. If I recall, I think I actually gagged while drinking it. I shudder even thinking about it. Decent enough to finish the box, but you're not going to like it.
