February Wine Of The Month

 

What better wine to celebrate a month dedicated to love and sweet things than a wine called “Love on Fire”?

 

Only in New Mexico does pairing red chile and chocolate make as much sense as pairing peanut butter and jelly or rum and coke. This is a combination well-suited to the making of candy, or hot chocolate, or maybe even a sauce for chicken.

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

Will have you reminiscing on times spent in grandma’s kitchen!!

$24.00
 

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!

 

Add a little sweet sizzle to your Valentine’s Day celebration!

 

“Though February is short, it is filled with lots of love and sweet surprises.”

∙ pairing wine with your favorite desserts ∙

 

 

Dessert and wine pairings are ideal for events like Valentine's Day, anniversaries, birthdays or just for fun!

 

Wine that pairs best with desserts need an element of sweetness, but they also need to have the same intensity of the dish. When pairing wine with dessert, there are two factors to consider:

 

1: Acidity- an acidic wine will pair best with a fruity dessert that also is acidic.

2: Intensity- The more intense the dessert (like dark chocolate cake), the more intense your wine should be.

Pro Tip: A good rule of thumb is that as the color of dessert gets darker, so should the wine!

 

Lemon Bars Paired With Chardonnay

2019 Double Barrel Reserve Chardonnay

 

 

Why it works: The fruity citrus notes of the wine bring out even more of a zippy lemon flavor from the dessert, and the buttery oak is complimentary to the flaky crust. 

 

$29.00
 

Chocolate Mouse Paired With Barrel Aged Sweet Red OR Amor En Fuego (Red Chile Chocolate Wine)

2019 Deviance

 

Why it works: The sweet strawberries and cherries of the wine balance with creamy heavy flavors of the chocolate as nuances of vanilla, tobacco, and smoke compliment baking spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. 

$27.00
 
 
Amor En Fuego (Red Chile & Chocolate Wine)

Why it works: The marshmallow and vanilla notes of the wine compliment the rich flavors of chocolate as the red chile spice cuts right through the heavy creaminess of the mouse, which makes it feel perfectly balanced.

$24.00
 
 

Apple Pie Paired With Gewürztraminer

2019 Gewürztraminer

 

Why it works:  Gewürztraminer combines fruit and spice in the same way apple pie does. Notes of  peaches, lavender, and cinnamon of the wine compliments the ginger-y flaky crust and crisp apples of the pie.

February Newsletter

 

Happy February you wine lovers! Did you know February comes from the Latin word februa, which means “to cleanse.” The month was named after the Roman Februalia, which was a month-long festival of starting fresh new beginnings that took place this time of year. We are right on time, because this month is all about getting in gear for a new growing season ahead! 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 and events this month! 

 

Our Tough, Acclimated Vines at Engle Farms

February is typically the snowiest month on average in the United States, and it turns out that snow is one of the secret ingredients that produces a bountiful harvest!

Vines are still dormant, but we are beginning to prepare the vineyard to replant new vines at Engle by improving irrigation systems, preparing to start pruning our vines within the next few months before bud break, and tuning up farming and harvesting equipment. One of the ways we are improving our irrigation system is by adding magnetics to our water drip lines that considerably promoted fruit growth last year. The magnets have increased water retention in the soil, reduced hard water clogs in drip heads and allowed the vines to absorb larger amounts of hard to use minerals in the soil!

  • We fell in love with holiday markets in Italy, where the streets are covered in string lights, holiday music is playing, local vendors are bundled up selling hand-crafted products, and holiday shoppers stroll through the rows of the market with a drink in hand. We were so inspired that we have recreated this magical experience right in our little village tucked away in the mountains of New Mexico.  The market is open to the public on Saturdays and Sundays at Enchanted Vine!

 

  • Enchanted Vine and our tasting rooms across New Mexico serve as cozy little getaways during the Winter, and especially during ski season! Gather around fire pits at the Enchanted Vine in Ruidoso and sip on some mulled wine or bundle up under the heated patio at our tasting rooms for a romantic Valentine's date!

Team Favorites

 
 

 Featuring Jessica And Her Favorite Wine 

 

 

Today we are shining the spotlight on Jessica, who works at our tasting room in Ruidoso, New Mexico. Jessica's favorite wine is our Bearly Legal, a semi-dry red wine that is so good it shouldn't be legal! The name of this wine immediately makes it likable, but the flavors of this wine is what sends it over the top! Jessica is mostly a dry red wine drinker, but when she craves something sweet, Bearly Legal hits the spot because its not overly sweet and is a perfect middle ground wine as a dry wine drinker.

 

PAIRING BEARLY LEGAL

Jessica enjoys drinking Bearly Legal with sharp cheeses like Asiago and a dill pickle spear! Now that's what we call a developed palate! Jessica says that this wine is delicious chilled or at room temperature and is best sipped on during movie nights or around a campfire. 

 

Asiago Cheese

  $10.00
 
 

Bearly Legal

  $20.00

Inspiration

 

Hard to bear? We don’t think so. But one sip and you’ll understand what we went through to get this wine into your glass (legally). 

 

Taste

 

Delectable fruit cocktail on the front, well-defined notes of wild cherry in the middle, and a smooth, creamy vanilla finish appreciable by even the most novice of wine drinkers.

 


Cheers!

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Petite Sirah

 
 

Wine Of The Week - 2018 Petite Sirah by Amy Bennett

 

Petite Sirah has a long, convoluted history. It was born in the 1870s, created by Dr. Francois Durif, a French nurseryman who wanted to create a grape that had the flavor of Syrah and the mildew-resistance of a varietal called Peloursin. He succeeded and named it “Durif”, but the grape never became a major French varietal. The grape migrated to the United States where it became a blending grape that did well in the California climate. The name “Durif” got lost along the way and someone decided that—due to the Syrah-like flavor and the small size of the grape—Petite Sirah was a good name for it.

But there is nothing small about the flavor of this particular wine!

 

Noisy Water Winery took Petite Sirah grapes, grown in the southern part of the state, and produced a wine with explosive dark fruit and snappy pepper on the nose; a rich, jammy blueberry middle; and a smooth vanilla finish from 15 months in French oak. The result is a full-bodied wine with strong tannins which pairs beautifully with steaks or any beef-centered meal. Try it with prime rib for a holiday dinner!

Big, bold, and delicious this dry red has finally made its way back to our selection!

This ain’t our first rodeo with this particular varietal… Noisy Water made a Petite Sirah a few years back that was big, bold, and delicious and this one is even better!

A Guide To Pairing Wine & Cheese

 
 

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!

Did You Know Red Wine Is Actually Good For Your Health?

 

Scientific Research Tells Us:

 

  • Polyphenols, (plant compounds) found in wine, can have a significant effect on the gut microbiome which can in turn reduce cardiovascular disease risk
  • Just 1 glass of red wine can increase healthy bacteria in your digestive system, similar in the way kombucha or yogurt can.
  • The polyphenol content in wine can have a positive effect on your immune system! As good bacteria grows in your gut, your immune health will also strengthen.
 

A Few Of Our Favorite Immune Boosting & Heart Healthy Red Wines:

2018 Petite Sirah

Wine Of The Week - 2019 Nuevo Nouveau

 

As was typical of 2020, the days ran together with the result that I totally missed a very important wine holiday that occurs about the third week of November: Beaujolais Nouveau Day.

Wait, what does all of that have to do with Noisy Water’s Nuevo Nouveau? Well, Nuevo Nouveau IS Noisy Water’s proprietary Beaujolais Nouveau, which is typically the first wine of the harvest, meant to be drunk immediately after production. This is because, back in the old days of wine making, by the time harvest season rolled around, the wine from the year before had already run out… and folks like to have wine! So around the middle of November, after the first fruits of the harvest had been crushed and fermented, the red wine made from Gamay grapes in the Beaujolais region of France were ready to grace the tables and keep people happy until the other wines had time to age and be ready for drinking.

 
2019 Nuevo Nouveau

Commonly known as Beaujolais Nouveau, we have put our New Mexican spin on this fun Proprieter Grown wine.

$24.00
 

Noisy Water’s 2019 Nuevo Nouveau has special meaning for our winemaker: after taking on a neglected vineyard in what appeared to be an inhospitable region of New Mexico and breathing new life into dying vines, the first fruits of what came to be known as the Forbidden Desert vineyard became our first proprietary wine. Instead of Gamay, Pinot Noir grapes were used to create what we affectionately referred to as our “Thanksgiving wine”—released in time to celebrate Thanksgiving and Beaujolais Nouveau day, with a bright burst of ripe berries on the palate, medium bodied and low on tannins but with a spark of acidity reminiscent of cranberries.

 

Though it’s been a few months since our “new” wine was released, it has mellowed a bit but still calls to mind ripe fruit on a sunny day and can make any meal a reason to give thanks!

 

“For everyday, we like Beaujolais, Grenache or Syrah, and we like a lot of it! It's a family tradition: We would never consider having a meal without wine”
— Jacques Pepin, French chef
