The first wine in the line up of the Twitter Taste Live Open That Bottle Night was a 2005 Marc Kreydenweiss Kritt Pinot Blanc. I unabashedly love Pinot Blanc. I’ve yet to meet one I don’t like. So it wasn’t much of a surprise to me that I enjoyed the Pinot Blanc the most of the 4 TTL wines. The wine had a real cork closure, clocked in at 12.5% alcohol by volume, and retails for around $18. I paid a bit less than that as part of the TTL tasting pack from Bin Ends Wine.
On the nose I found pear, vanilla, minerals, apple, spice, green apple, peach, citrus, lemon drop, and stones. I loved the nose on this wine, one of those bottles where I wanted to keep smelling it. The 10 minutes I spent with my glass during the TTL seemed far too short. In the mouth I got flavors of pear, apple, lemon, citrus, minerals, apricot, honey, sweet peaches, slight tropical notes, and tart oranges.
The wine had an overall full mouth feel and finish that kept going, and going, and going. At $18, this is a steal of a bargain for what you get in the bottle. I’d highly recommend this wine for the upcoming warm weather.
