Wine Of The Week - 2019 Tighty Whitey White

I had a hard time finding a “tighty whiteys” quote, but one look at our new label(s) will put this quote in perspective!
 
“All that running around in my underwear put money in my pockets.”
—Mark Wahlberg

Too often, people think of fine wines in conjunction with formality. Fine china, gourmet foods, and tuxedos. And very intimidating. That’s why the advice is often given that, when one is facing a formidable audience or opponent, you can relax and feel more confident if you picture them in their underwear. “It made him realize his audience was human. I mean, you can’t be very frightening in your underwear!” (so said Dad-of-the-Century, Mike Brady to daughter, Jan, in “The Brady Bunch”!) So what better way to introduce wine drinkers to a previously daunting dry white wine blend than to picture the winemakers—and friends—in their underwear?

Noisy Water’s 2019 Tighty Whitey White is the third incarnation of this off-dry white. This time, we made it a proprietary blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, using grapes from our own Forbidden Desert vineyard in Engle, New Mexico. A light floral nose invites you to sip into something more comfortable: pear and honey mingling in the middle and finishing with soothing, yet spicy, hints of chamomile and ginger. Crisp and light-bodied, it’s an easy-to-drink wine for just about any meal or occasion.

A wine meant for the masses. One that strips it all down: back to when we only had a few oak barrels and our tighty whities

So strip it down to a new refreshing favorite. Dress it up, if you wish, with white linen tablecloths and more than one fork, but underneath, feel as comfortable and relaxed as if you’re kicking back on your own living room couch or back deck with just the bare necessities of life! 
 
In memory of John E. Woodward, who named this wine, a portion of the proceeds from sales of Tighty Whitey White go to support local charities in the Ruidoso area.

Wine Of The Week - Jo Mamma's Sweet Rosé

 
Ah, what would Noisy Water Winery be without Jo Mamma’s line of wines? Our flagship wines of Jo Mamma’s White and Jo Mamma’s Red sweet table wines have won us many loyal followers (including yours truly) and, in recent years, our red and white have been joined by a few new “sisters”, most notably Mango Tango and Very Berry, which have become extremely popular in their own right, with very distinctive flavor profiles.

Then along came little sister, Sweet Rosé, and demanded her own moment in the spotlight.

Showcasing a gorgeous shade of sunset pink and offering a bouquet of tulips, melons, and peaches on the nose, Jo Mamma’s Sweet Rosé is the perfect summer wine. Sweet, yet light bodied, with a refreshing burst of pomegranate on the palate and a clean, sweet berry finish, it appears deceptively demure but don’t let it fool you! Noisy Water blended Black Muscat grapes with Barbera grapes to produce a wine that’s dangerously easy to drink, a welcome respite from warm summer days and making the summer evenings with friends so enjoyable.

Like most rosés, Jo Mamma’s Sweet Rosé is the epitome of summer wine drinking. Pair it with a patio full of friends and a spicy spread of Mexican food; make it the supporting star at a bachelorette party; lounge by the pool with a glass; or try to match the colors of the sunset in the evening as you enjoy a glass with a special friend. Whichever way you choose, Jo Mamma’s Sweet Rosé is sure to attract several new admirers and loyal followers… so join the club!

Harvest Update!

slowing down, sort of…
Harvest Update

We are in the final stretch of grape harvest! With summer temperatures climbing in early June, we received and crushed most of our grapes before Labor Day weekend - we normally expect to be harvesting into mid-October! What might we do with this unexpected lull in September? We have plans…
 

Though wine crush is slowing down, we are staying just as busy with fruit from our neighbors in the Hondo Valley. We are receiving beautiful apples and pears by the bin.  We will be making fresh Uncle Dick's Hard Cider to pour for you out of our Silo Bar at Enchanted Vine. Our Silo Bar is open from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm daily.
 
The Enchanted Vine Barn is also where we will be celebrating the release of the new Tighty Whitey.  You heard the buzz about the new label, but have you tasted the wine?  This batch is made with grapes from the Forbidden Desert Vineyard - which means the grapes were obsessively cared for by the famous Uncle Richard (Uncle Dick).  The new Tighty Whitey White is even brighter, cleaner, and more crisp than prior vintages.

Come see us on October 3rd from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm to try the new Tighty Whitey and enjoy the celebration that marks the conclusion of harvest. 
 
How does this harvest compare to prior years? First, it was early and hot! Once again 2020 caught us off-guard…. damn you 2020.  Second, there was an influx of the bird population in New Mexican vineyards which left many vines picked over by birds before harvest.  This means the harvest was lean and batches will be slightly smaller.  If you fall in love with a 2020 vintage New Mexico wine, stock up - they will likely be more limited than prior years!

The grapes though… well, the birds were right.  It is BEAUTIFUL quality fruit and we will be eager to put the final product in the bottle!  By the end of October we will be bottling 2020 white and
rosé wine, the remaining 2018 red wine, and some of the 2019 red wine.  November is going to be a month of welcoming new wines to the Noisy family - just in time for the holiday season!
 
 
Back at the Forbidden Desert Vineyard were the living isn't easy, Richard is already strategizing for next year. He is busy mowing, mending soil, repairing trellises, and winter fertilizing.  He is also prepping old blocks of the vineyard so we can plant new vines in the spring.  As usual, he is obsessing over every detail and tending to the vines with the upmost care.

Richard's love of the Forbidden Dessert isn't unjustified - this vineyard (and his love for it) produces amazing grapes. 

Have you tried these Forbidden Desert favorites?

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Pinot Grigio

 
When we were kids, nothing tasted better on a hot summer day than an ice-cold glass of lemonade. Now as an adult, think of Pinot Grigio as lemonade for grown ups!

Because Noisy Water is located in the southern part of New Mexico, we know all about hot summers, even though we’re in the cool pines. Our 2018 Pinot Grigio makes the heat more bearable with its crisp acidity and refreshing citrusy notes. You can almost feel the crunch of a juicy green apple with the first sip. 

Pinot Grigio is the second most popular white wine in America and probably outsells every other wine during the hotter months of the year. Born in France as Pinot Gris (“gris” referring to the grayish-blue color of the grape skins), it migrated north to Switzerland then to northern Italy where it became known as Pinot Grigio. It became the most popular white wine in Italy, then the most popular imported white wine in the US. Thanks to our southern New Mexico climate, we have a domestic Pinot Grigio that can rival any import!

We wanted to take one of our favorite varietals and obtain clean, crisp perfection in a bottle. Enjoy!
View

Its crisp acidity pairs well with any kind of decadent, buttery dishes, seafood in particular. Pair it with creamy, rich cheeses to start off a meal or enjoy it with a light lunch of salad with grilled chicken. My favorite way to enjoy it is when the sun goes down and the coolness of the evening echoes the chilled Pinot Grigio in my glass. I raise my glass and offer a toast to the friends and loved ones sharing the bottle. I take a sip and….

It’s almost as if some of the stars fell into my wine glass!

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Demigod

 
“Demigod”, by definition, is half human, half god, and Bacchus is the Roman god of the grape-harvest, winemaking, and wine. And certainly, there is something heavenly in a glass of Noisy Water Winery’s 2018 Demigod!

Cabernet Sauvignon is generally a dry red that is rich in tannins and, to a certain extent, a little intimidating to novice wine drinkers. Demigod, however, is true to its namesake and loves to be loved (according to the dictionary, “demigod” is also defined as one “who is greatly admired and respected”) and therefore is a little easier on a wider range of palates.

Semi-dry and medium-bodied, 2018 Demigod is a wine for all times and for all tastes. Not as dry as most Cabernet Sauvignons, it bursts with juicy red sweet cherries and dark fruits with a hint of vanilla and a smooth finish. It makes an excellent wine for the warmer summer months when stronger tannins are not as desirable. Demigod has become one of Noisy Water’s most popular wines and it’s easy to see why!

This wine is perfectly at home at a white tablecloth-covered meal but it shines most at the patio or picnic table, with a steak or burger fresh off the grill… or in front of the TV with a pizza and good friends. The balance of this semi-dry red makes it a wine that’s perfect for just about every palate, encouraging sweet drinkers to venture into reds, and still dry enough to please most dry drinkers.

Pop a cork on a bottle of 2018 Demigod and prepare to experience the nectar of the gods!



“Did someone just call me the wine dude?” he asked in a lazy drawl.
“It’s Bacchus, please. Or Mr. Bacchus. Or Lord Bacchus.”
