Wine Of The Week - 2019 Chenin Blanc

 

June is a magical month; the first month of summer, not quite unbearably hot, yet still making one yearn for something light and cool. Our 2019 Chenin Blanc fills the bill quite nicely!

30+ year old vines in our Forbidden Desert vineyard in Engle, New Mexico have provided our winemaker with a bounty of grapes that have become wines with a special place in the glasses of our guests and in their hearts as well. Chenin Blanc is a varietal that lends itself to drawing its flavors and character from the terroir and the skill of the winemaker and this wine is a perfect example of New Mexico land and people making their mark on the final product.

 
2019 Chenin Blanc

tart pear • honeydew melon • lemon verbena

 

This crisp and light-bodied varietal takes a modern spin as these grapes produce a very lean, minerally style Chenin Blanc that pairs perfectly with a relaxing and warm afternoon.

$24.00
 

Notes of tart pear, lemon verbena, and refreshing honeydew melon dance on the tongue with this remarkably well-balanced wine. With a bold, citrusy body and finish, it’s the perfect wine to serve on a warm summer night. Pair it with crisp salad, fresh fruit, or grilled chicken or salmon to showcase the bright flavors and light acidity.


Pour a glass of 2019 Chenin Blanc and let summer begin!
 

 

“There are moments, above all on June evenings, when…
nothing is left but wine and the touch of a hand”

Vineyard Farming

 
 

soil health and sustainable farming practices.

 

What Does It Mean To Farm Sustainably?

 

A sustainable winemaking process can be defined by many things, but what it really all comes down to is a few simple things:

• Does the winemaking process protect the environment and are farming practices done consciously and intentionally with the environment in mind?

 

• Does the winemaking process support social responsibility while maintaining economic feasibility?

  

• Does the wine production system mimic how vegetables and plants grow in natural ecosystems?

 

 

Sustainable wine grape growing is the journey of continually improving one's ability to minimize farming's environmental and social footprints.

Here's what we are doing:

Doing The Dirty The Natural Way: Soil Rehab & Revitalization

Before Noisy Water ownership, the soil at The Forbidden Desert Vineyard was over tilled, over plowed and became so overworked. When this happens, the soil stops feeding the plants nutrients and can cause the vines to slowly die. In an effort to give back to the farmland that has and will give so much to us, we utilize a few different sustainable farming practices: 

 

Weed removal methods such as disking and undercutting can cause copious amounts of soil erosion, so we opt to just let Mother Nature take the wheel and let cover crops/weeds grow and then we mow/mulch them back into the soil. This feeds the soil with plant material and nutrients and restructures and secures the topsoil.

Fungus Among Us

 

 

We give our soil that extra boost of confidence to produce amazing grapes with inoculations of mycorrhizae fungi. 

 

A mycorrhiza is a symbiotic association between a green plant and a fungus. This permits the plant to obtain additional moisture and nutrients and greatly increase the absorptive area of a plant, acting as extensions to the root system. These inoculations are awesome for the long term health of the soil, and therefore the plants.

🍇 How Does Wine Get Its Color?🍇

 

The color is the first characteristic of wine that we notice, and the color can hint at what you might expect for its aroma, flavor and texture. But never judge a bottle by its appearance, because the wine color is not always indicative of the color of grape it is sourced from!

 

Read More on The Magic

Did you know that many white wines like
Champagne or Zinfandel are produced from red grapes? The color of wine is influenced by many factors. Here's a few:

 

When making white wine, the grapes are pressed and the skins of the grapes are immediately removed from contact with the grape juice. Whereas when making red wine, the skins are left in contact with the juice, naturally dying the juice a red/ purple/ garnet tint.

The intensity of the hue is determined by the amount of time the juice is left in contact with the skins, what time of year the grapes are grown and even the thickness of the grape skins!

The pigment of grapes, made of phenolic compounds, can express itself in a number of hues, depending on the specific type and the pH of the surrounding plant tissue. 

Climate can also influence the color of a grape! Soil that is high in calcium can produce thicker-skinned grapes, providing intense wine color hues and a sturdier structure to the grape.

Featuring Hope and Her Current Favorite Wine 

Hope just finished out her first year of wine tending at the tasting room in Ruidoso and says her favorite part about serving wine in the pines is getting to meet people from all walks of life with different backgrounds and from different places. 

 

"There truly is a wine for everyone at Noisy, and we like to think of wine as a common ground that brings people together to connect-no matter the differences!"

 

 When Hope is away from the wine bar, she soaks up the beautiful nature that Ruidoso is surrounded by and goes on nature walks through the forest and occasionally fishes at one of Ruidoso's local lakes. 

 

Read more on Hope's favorite wine and her recommendations for pairing! ⬇

 

🐻UNBEARABLY GOOD🐻

sweet strawberry • subtle spice • ripe blackberry

Hope's current favorite wine in the Unbearably Good. Her favorite quality of this semi-sweet red is its aromas of sweet strawberry and cherry, and its hint of spice on the mid palate making each sip refreshingly balanced.

 
Unbearably Good

This red wine is not too sweet, not too dry, but just right! The name of the wine serves as a cute little sentiment to our hometown, as Ruidoso is known for it's bear sightings- particularly the baby bear cubs running around town each spring! 

  $18.00
 

PAIRING UNBEARABLY GOOD:

Hope recommends pairing Unbearably Good in the spring with freshly picked wild berries or a nice soft cheese-great for sitting around a campfire with friends and family!

🍇 Yeast: Why it's Essential to the Winemaking Process 🍇

 

Yeasts are single-celled fungal organisms. Without them, there would be no alcohol. Not wine, nor beer, or any spirits distilled from various fermented carbohydrates. Yeast converts sugars into alcohol, which creates carbon dioxide and heat. This is how the dough in bread rises, how malted grain turns into beer and grapes turns into wine.

So how does it work?

 

Yeast cells cozy up in warm temperatures and a sugary environment that’s not too acidic. Not too cold, nor too sour, but just right.  Apart from sugar, yeasts also need nutrients like nitrogen and vitamins. As long as these conditions are met, yeasts will ferment fresh grapes into delicious wine.

 

2019 Wild Ferment Old Vine Pinot Noir

Winemakers add yeast to most wines to emphasize aromas or flavors, but natural fermentation can also occur. That's exactly what occurred in the 2019 Wild Ferment Old Vine Pinot Noir! Left to its own devices, the crushed grapes will start to ferment due to natural yeasts present on grape skins and in the winery. This style of winemaking can be traced back to 400 years ago, making this bottle wise in its years. Notes of bright strawberry and blackberry are complimented with nuances of fig leaving you with a fruit forward satisfying finish.

June Newsletter

 
 
 

June is officially here and that means warm days, rainy afternoons, and cool evenings! Our Engle Vineyard is weathered and tough in its years, and it soaks up the warm sun gladly. Some even say that the dry desert climate is what makes our grapes so unique and authentic. As the grapes continue to grow, the team is working on improvements and experimentation in the farming side of things! We planted 3,000 new vines in Engle to introduce new varietals we can grow and hopefully enjoy in a few years! Some of these new vines were planted with different root stocks, to see if they are even more drought tolerant and cold resistant. 

 

Another project in the vineyard we are working on is inoculating the new vines with mycorrhizae, a fungus which grows in association with the roots of a plant in a symbiotic relationship, to help colonize good bacteria in the soil at the root zone. In other news, when the vines start to grow, the deer and antelope take that as a dinner invitation and munch on the leaves like its their own salad bar. 

 

This month's newsletter gives you a sneak peek into what happens behind the scenes at Noisy, and is packed full of information about featured products, events and what's to come!

 Featuring Steve and His Current Favorite Wine

Steve is coming up on his two year mark at Noisy Water in Ruidoso, NM. He is a jack of all trades and bar tends at the Midtown Ruidoso location and the Enchanted Vine Barn. Steve also contributes to the team behind the scenes in the actual wine and cider production. Steve loves working and living in the quiet mountain town of our beloved Ruidoso and spends his time fishing at the local lakes and perfecting his golf game in the breezy fairways at our local courses. His favorite part about being on the Noisy team is getting to be involved with the tight knit community and sharing a quality experience with his co-workers and visitors from all over. 

 

Steve is cool, calm and collected and the chillest guy to kick back with while wine tasting. His friendly and loving personality paired with some amazing wine makes for an unforgettable experience at the tasting rooms.

 

Steve's Current Favorite Wine

2018 Petite Sirah

 

blueberry • subtle pepper • vanilla

 

Our 2018 Petite Sirah is a crowd pleasing favorite and is known for its bold appearance and its big tannins. This is Steve's favorite wine for its striking flavor profile and versatility when it comes to pairing it with food. He recommends pairing the 2018 Petite Syrah with smoked brisket in particular, as the woodsy smoke notes of the brisket compliment the big, bold and juicy flavors of the dry red wine.

 

Its deep purple hue immediately catches the eye as you are met with the vivid aroma of bright blueberry. Subtle pepper notes open to tannic, yet juicy and jammy mid palate and a rich vanilla finish.

🍇 Bung Holes: What they are and why we love em' 🍇

 

A bunghole is a hole bored into a barrel and capped with a large cork-like object called a ‘bung’.  It is essentially the hole which lets you get quick and easy access to the wine inside.

 

Fun Fact:

 

How do we know when it's time to retire a barrel? Well, we stick our nose in it! After a barrel has been emptied and cleaned our winemakers and crew smell all the barrels. It's a day full of smelling bungholes 😉
