Music & White Wine

 
 
 

Wednesday we sent you our red wine playlist, now check out our white wine playlist, blanco sips. 

 

A Customized Playlist For White Wine Drinkers

 

We thought the concept of music influencing the taste of wine was so interesting we made a custom Spotify playlist for white wine drinkers. 

 

Move your mind to new frames of reference. pair a sound, melody or tune and be reminded of a specific place, event or period of life. Music can heavily influence how you experience wine, mellow music makes wine taste more subtle, whereas lively music makes wine taste more dynamic.

 

Inspiration Behind The Playlist:

 

To pair music with wine, the best way is to first find commonalities in both the wine and the music. A lot of white wines have fruity, tangy, clean and crisp elements so we curated a playlist that reflected that as well. Expect to listen to songs that are lively, youthful, fresh and bubbly. 

Disclaimer:

This playlist will put you in a good mood, and you might start dancing suddenly, who knows.

Wine & Charcuterie

 
 

A Date Idea Just in Time For Valentine's Day

 
 

THE SCIENCE

 

Science tells us that pairing foods and beverages that taste similar to one another improves the experience and that the similarities compliment one another, but the opposite can also be true! The fat in cheese and the acidity in wine compliment each other because of that very fact- they are opposites! The different compounds of cheese and wine creates a balanced and pleasing "mouthfeel," which refers to the way foods feel in the mouth. No wonder cheese and wine pair so perfectly!

 

A Guide To Your Next Charcuterie Board

 

Olive oil and vinegar are excellent additions to charcuterie boards, as they can compliment many things on your board! They add that extra flair of flavor to crackers, bread or can be used as a dipping sauce in the center of our board.

 

Cheese is the ingredient in your charcuterie board that will complete it. Cheese adds different textures and colors to the board and can be paired with basically anything. Pro tip: Choose a variety of cheese that have different textures and tastes! For example, feta is soft and salty, as asiago is hard and slightly sweet.

 
Feta
$10.00
 
 
Asiago
$10.00
 
 

Rustic red wines such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petite Sirah, and Zinfandel have bold tannins and a rustic taste pair with charcuterie with similar, smoky flavors

Holiday Wine Guide

 
 

 

BUYING WINE FOR THE HOLIDAYS

 

A Field Guide Pt 1

 

THANKSGIVING DINNER

 

There are 4 components that traditionally go into a Thanksgiving dinner:

  1. PROTEIN: Turkey or ham
  2. ROASTED DISHES: Green bean casserole, or anything baked in the oven
  3. DRY SPICES: Cinnamon, clove, dried herbs
  4. WINTER FRUIT AND VEGETABLES: Squash, Brussel sprouts, onion, cranberry and potato

 

When you start to think about all of the ingredients that go into making Thanksgiving dinner, you begin to eliminate wines that possess flavors that are opposite of the flavors you would taste in your feast! Ideally, the goal is to match similar or complimenting flavors found in your meal and in wine! A dry red wine, for example, mirrors those similar flavors like nutmeg and dark fruits that are more in line with the flavor profiles in the entree of your meal.

 

We recommend a Pinot Noir, Zinfandel or a Barbara/ Gamay blend:

 

ON TO DESSERT

 

Pumpkin Pie is a staple dessert at Thanksgiving and is the perfect fall holiday treat. The mulling spices and honeyed fruit flavors found in sweeter white wines pairs up well with the rounder flavor of pumpkin and can handle the fall spices.

 

We recommend the 2019 Moscato and 2019 Gewürztraminer

 

Don't gamble on a cute label at the grocery store: keep your wine rack stocked with your favorite small producer!

 


Cheers!

4 Steps to Tasting Wine:

 

1: LOOK. Give your glass of wine a visual inspection in neutral light. Check out the color, opacity and viscosity.

 

2: SMELL. Identify aromas by swirling your wine 3 or 4 times to let the aromatic compounds of the wine mix with the air. Think big to small. Ask yourself are there fruits? What kind of fruits? Tropical? Orchard?

  • You can divide the aroma of a wine into three separate categories: Primary Aromas are where you find fruit, herb and floral notes. Secondary Aromas originate from winemaking practices (fermentation, etc). And Tertiary Aromas come from aging, usually in a bottle or an oak barrel. These aromas are mostly nutty, vanilla, baking spices and cedar.

 

3: TASTE. Assess the taste structure of the wine. Is it sour, sweet, bitter? Pay attention the the texture of the wine. We perceive wine as richer than water and we can also detect tannins with our tongues, which is that drying sensation you get from dry red wines. When tasting wine, there is a beginning, middle and end finish, so focus in on how the wine tastes as it moves through your mouth.

 

4: THINK. What conclusion have you drawn about the wine? Was it unique or memorable? Were there any characteristics that stood out to you?

 

Let's put the 4 steps to the test.

 

2016 Curtain Call

 
  $40.00

1. LOOK. Deep purple color. Saturation and density are heavy and is full-bodied.

 

2: SMELL. Heavy dark orchard fruit. Primary aroma of black cherry and tertiary aromas of vanilla.

 

3: TASTE. Pitted fruits and blackberries. Silky smooth beginning and mid-palate, finishes bone dry.

 

4: THINK. The deep and dark fruits are complimented by a slight vanilla aroma and flavor which balances the flavors. Perfect wine to pair with performing arts, or any reason for a curtain call.

 

 

Don't gamble on a cute label at the grocery store: keep your wine rack stocked with your favorite small producer!


Cheers!

Beaujolias

 

 

N U E V O  N O U V E A U

30 million bottles of wine are shipped out around the world within 60 days of grape harvest from eastern France’s Beaujolais region.

 

Released on the third Thursday of November at 12:01 a.m. every year since 1951

Sound impossible? Hardly. We have a bottle just for you.

 
New Beginnings
 

As the name implies, Nuevo (Beaujolais) Nouveau, is "new" - young, that is - and is bottled less than two months after crushing the grapes.

 

In the 1950s, winemakers began competing each year in a race to deliver the first bottles to Paris, and before we knew it the competition had been pushed and publicized enough that the harvest and distribution of this wine is now celebrated all over the world at exactly midnight on the third Thursday of November, when it is legal to pop a bottle open.

Taste

 

Fresh, youthful and vibrant with lush, juicy aromas of grape, raspberry, fig, banana, and cranberries. This is as close as you can get to drinking wine straight from the vine.

 

Pairing

 

A superb match for turkey, right in time for Thanksgiving.

$29.00

A Quick Guide To Removing Wine Stains

The saying goes "don't cry over spilled milk." But spilled wine is definitely a cause to be at least a little bit sad! Your precious vino is wasted, and it's probably stained something you care about like your clothes, your couch, or (even worse) your white carpet. Luckily, we've got a few tricks up our sleeve to help you get rid of those stubborn stains. 

General Cleaning Tips
 
Don't scrub, blot! Scrubbing can cause the stain to absorb even further, while blotting removes additional wine before you begin cleaning. Blot the stain with a paper towel or rag until no more residue comes off. 
 
Don't let it sit! As tempting as it may be, try not to let the stain sit before you begin cleaning. The longer it sits, the harder it will be to remove.
 
Don't throw in the towel...literally! It might be tempting to give up, especially if you're trying to clean white wine (which can be peskier to remove although the pigments aren't as vibrant). Keep blotting, cleaning, and repeating and you'll eventually succeed!
Removing Red Wine Stains
 
Salt: Salt is especially helpful when removing red wine stains from couches, rugs, or carpet. After blotting, cover the stain with a generous amount of salt. Once the salt soaks into the wet wine, let it dry completely. It should absorb the stain once dry. Then, vacuum up the salt residue. 
 
Dish soap and hydrogen peroxide: Mix a solution of 1/2 dish soap and hydrogen peroxide. Pour the solution over the stain and let it soak. Then rinse, blot, and repeat until clean.
 
Baking soda and water: Create a paste by mixing three parts baking soda and one part water. Apply to the stain and vacuum once dry. 
Removing White Wine Stains
 
Cold water and laundry detergent: This method works great for items you can't throw in the wash. Pour cold water over the stain and blot with a rag covered in laundry detergent (the liquid kind works best). Repeat until the stain is removed.
 
Dishwashing detergent, white vinegar, and water: Mix one part liquid dishwashing detergent with one part white vinegar and two parts warm water. Sponge the mixture onto the stain until it is removed. Then, sponge with cold water and blot the area until dry.
Hopefully you don't need to use these methods, but if they come in handy that probably means you need some more wine...we happen to know where you can get some

NEED WHITE?

Wine Of The Week - Amor En Fuego

 
Only in New Mexico does pairing red chile and chocolate make as much sense as pairing peanut butter and jelly or rum and coke. While some people raise an eyebrow at the idea, they think this is something that is better suited to the making of candy, or hot chocolate, or maybe even a sauce for chicken.

Then along comes Noisy Water Winery and says, “Hey! How about making red chile and chocolate WINE???”

Amor En Fuego is literally translated as “love on fire”. And if you love red chile, chocolate, and wine, you’ll understand how this wine got its name. With hints of berries and toasted marshmallow on the nose, and a rich velvety middle of milk chocolate, cinnamon, and vanilla, finishing with a spicy red chile kick (but not too spicy!), this wine is a perfect complement to an appetizer course loaded with fruits and cheeses or as a dessert with a rich cheesecake or anything sweet and creamy like tres leches cake. Or pair it with something dark and chocolatey, like brownies.


Amor En Fuego (Red Chile & Chocolate Wine)
Amor En Fuego (Red Chile & Chocolate Wine)
$24.00

This New Mexico red chile and chocolate infused wine, will have you reminiscing on times spent in grandma’s kitchen!!

While it makes a delicious and intriguing dessert wine on its own, it can also be used to liven up hot chocolate or coffee. Or, freeze Amor En Fuego into cubes and use it to make a deliciously boozy iced coffee! Dress it up with a dash of cinnamon or red chile powder! You can also substitute it for any liquid in brownie or cake recipes to add a subtle, extra flavor dimension.

Whether served by itself or used to enhance a favorite stand-by recipe, you’ll be sure to add a little New Mexico flavor and mystique to your glass and table by including Noisy Water’s Amor En Fuego to your selection of great wines from the Land of Enchantment!
