Wine Of The Week - 2018 Zia Chardonnay

One of the first white wines most people encounter and the experience is almost always memorable, for various reasons.

Chardonnay is one of the first white wines most people encounter and the experience is almost always memorable, for various reasons. In my case, the first time I tasted Chardonnay was back in the ‘80s when it reached its peak of popularity… and at the time, winemakers were particularly enamored of oaky Chardonnays. VERY oaky Chardonnays. And a little oak goes a long, long way!

My next experience was with Noisy Water Winery’s Zia Chardonnay. To my surprise, it had no oak at all. Because the Chardonnay grape is fairly neutral by itself, this particular varietal lends itself to be molded and shaped into a unique wine according to the winemaker’s skills and whims. In this case, Zia Chardonnay was aged in stainless steel—Old World meets the New World in a marriage of a traditional grape with a contemporary aging process. As a result, it was smoother, easier to drink, a wine that would be as perfectly at home at a picnic table or the patio as it would be on the formal dinner table.

 
Zia Chardonnay

 

A complex Chardonnay that can make everyone happy. Traditional collides with new age.

$22.00
 

Medium bodied and semi-dry, with a slight minerality, this Chardonnay is perfect to pair with seafood and fruit. Along with crisp citrus notes with a buttery finish, there is a perfect balance of vanilla and fruit on the nose, making this a perfect wine to drink on its own on a warm sunny day. If you think all Chardonnays are the same, try Zia Chardonnay and prepare to experience Chardonnay again for the first time!


Named Zia after the symbol on the New Mexico state flag and robed in a label the color of turquoise, the state gem of New Mexico, this wine epitomizes the spirit of the state—unique, daring, and of undeniable beauty. It’s no wonder it was awarded a silver medal at the New Mexico State Fair in 2018 and it is sure to enchant dry and sweet drinkers alike.
 

 

“You can’t beat a nice glass of Chardonnay after a long, hard day.”

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Sauvignon Blanc

inspired by the refreshing mountain rains there is something to be said about the quality of this dry white

Noisy Water Winery claims its 2018 Sauvignon Blanc was inspired by the refreshing mountain rains. Certainly there is something to be said about the quality of this dry white and equating it with rain showers in the cool pines of Ruidoso!

Originating in France and one of the most widely planted wine grapes in the world, Sauvignon Blanc also has one of the largest ranges of flavors depending on where it is grown. It can range from a kicky, citrusy lime flavor to a rich, floral orchard fruit taste. Pyrazine is an aromatic compound found in Sauvignon Blanc that is responsible for the signature herbaceous quality of the wine. Depending on the age of the grapes and other factors, such as exposure to sunlight, the pyrazine level can enhance the flavor and finish of the wine.

 
2018 Sauvignon Blanc

 

Prepare your senses for this wonderfully easy-to-drink white wine!

$27.00
 

Noisy Water’s Sauvignon Blanc boasts fresh fruit on the nose, hints of peaches and pineapple, with a crisp and slightly acidic finish that makes it a easy-to-drink, perfectly balanced white wine. It has a crisp, dry finish and pairs well with all things green and fresh, especially dishes prepared with fresh basil, cilantro, rosemary, mint, and bell pepper or jalapeño. Pair with goat cheese or seafood; the briny flavor balances out the acidity of the wine.


Pour a glass of 2018 Sauvignon Blanc and feel the kiss of mountain rain on your tongue. It might inspire you to take a trip to the cool pines and visit Noisy Water!

 

“…I'd give you a taste of this nice new sauvignon blanc... It's going to go perfectly with the appetizers…."Jamie savored a tiny sip, and smiled blissfully. "You're right. It's delicious."
— Susan Wiggs, “The Beekeeper’s Ball”

Wine Of The Week - 2016 Curtain Call by Amy Bennett

 

2016 Curtain Call is the name given to Noisy Water Winery’s Bordeaux-style blend of dry red wines. “Bordeaux” refers to a wine from the Bordeaux region of France and is primarily made most often from Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot or other red grapes, although there are also white Bordeaux varietals. Despite John Cleese’s tongue-in-cheek comment, “Claret” is actually what Bordeaux wines are called in Britain.

 

“I can certainly see that you know your wine. Most of the guests who stay here wouldn't know the difference between Bordeaux and Claret.”
— John Cleese (Basil Fawlty, “Fawlty Towers”)

A blend of six different varietals, each showcasing its own characteristics in this spectacular blend: Malbec, Mourvèdre, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Petit Verdot. Though dry from start to finish, it has a velvety middle and is silky-smooth at the end, with dark berries and vanilla as an intriguing introduction. Full-bodied with rich tannins, it’s definitely the star performer at an elegant dinner or a simple evening repast.

 
2016 Curtain Call

Over 5 different unique varietals give an array of bold flavors and intimate complexities, while a perfect balance of fruit and oak helps this wine achieve nirvana.

$40.00
 

Curtain Call is definitely a prime example of our winemaker’s talent and creativity. Balancing the rich flavors and tannins of six different grape varietals is much like juggling crystal goblets, where a master touch is needed to find the perfect blend. It’s no surprise this wine has won awards from state level all the way up to international competitions.

 

So, on with the show! Uncork a bottle of Curtain Call and let your palate burst into applause!

 

“Hurried and worried until we’re buried, and there’s no curtain call, Life’s a very funny proposition after all.”
— George M. Cohan

What are we drinking this month?

→ Rosé ←

 

Why? Rosé is unique because it has the fruit-forward vibrancy of a white wine with the bold and comforting body of a red: it is a perfect match for the heartier meals we crave when the air turns crisp and cool. 

 

Rosé with a dense stew on a cold evening - delicious. Rosé with pizza and wings on a lazy Sunday while watching football  - what a comfort.  Rosé with seafood and rice - my mouth is watering  just thinking about it.  Rosé while cozying up by the fireplace - yes… 100% yes.
