Wine Of The Week - 2019 Nuevo Verde

 
Noisy Water Winery has long been known for a particular green wine—our Besito Caliente green chile wine—but that’s not what we‘re  talking about here.

Nuevo Verde (“new green”) Dry White Wine is a very special addition to the Noisy Water family of wines. It is made from the first harvest of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc grapes grown in our own Forbidden Desert Vineyard near Engle, New Mexico. After years of neglect, the vineyard was acquired by Noisy Water and immediately smothered with love, attention, and lots of water (in New Mexico, water is synonymous with love). It responded and produced an impressive first harvest and Nuevo Verde is one of the results of that labor of love.

In this instance, “green” also refers to “new” and Nuevo Verde is our winemaker’s take on Vinho Verde, a dry white wine that has increased in popularity in the last ten to fifteen years. While the term “Vinho Verde” (“green wine”)  typically refers to wines produced in a certain region in northern Portugal, it also means wine produced from an early harvest and drunk young, with little or no aging. This gives the wine a crisp and refreshing “young” finish. It is typically a blend of white wine grapes, not a particular varietal, a can be enjoyed with a meal or by itself.

Citrusy and bright, with a dry, fruity finish, Nuevo Verde is a great way to welcome summer. Light-bodied with a slight hint of acidity, it pairs well with lighter summer fare, such as salads and seafood, and is the perfect wine to enjoy with friends on a summer evening. Whether your meal is off the grill or out of the picnic basket, a bottle of Nuevo Verde is a perfect complement to your summer.

“When green is all there is to be
It could make you wonder why
But, why wonder, why wonder?
I'm green and it'll do fine
It's beautiful and I think it's what I want to be”

--Andrew Bird, sung by Kermit the Frog

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 - 2018 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay

 
Years ago, I discovered the difference between coach class and first class: Coach class offers a choice of white wine or red wine. First class offers Chardonnay or Cabernet.

Anytime someone says “white wine”, the wine that immediately comes to mind is Chardonnay. That’s not surprising, considering that Chardonnay is one of the most popular wines as well as one of the most planted varietals in the world. Though it originated in eastern France, it is now grown all over the world, including New Mexico which has the perfect climate to produce Chardonnays with a citrusy, peachy flavor.

Because it is a fairly neutral grape, most of its flavor derives from the terroir in which it is grown and the way in which it is aged, which enables the winemaker to showcase their skills in bringing out the grapes’ full potential. At the peak of its popularity in the late ‘80s, some winemakers got a little carried away with aging Chardonnay in oak, which gave it a characteristic with which it has become synonymous. However, the type and amount of oak aging, or none at all, can be the winemaker’s touch in bringing out the best of Chardonnay.

Finding the perfect balance of butter and oak: A Chardonnay for all Chardonnay drinkers to love.
View

Noisy Water Winery’s 2018 Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay has a perfect balance of oak and butter that will please the palates of most wine drinkers. Traditionally a “Thanksgiving Day wine”, its dry finish and medium to full body also makes it a perfect wine to enjoy all summer long. The aroma of stone fruit and a hint of citrus leads the way into a toasted, buttery middle and a smoky vanilla finish, giving it a richness that seems creamy and yet refreshing. Truly this is a wine for all seasons!

And to quote the late Maya Angelou: “On Saturday afternoons when all the things are done in the house and there's no real work to be done, I play Bach and Chopin and turn it up real loudly and get a good bottle of chardonnay and sit out on my deck and look out at the garden.”  Granted, you may prefer to listen to something other than Bach or Chopin (I personally prefer George Strait!), but make sure you have a bottle of Noisy Water’s 2018 Vintner’s Reserve Chardonnay to enjoy. And just relax!

“Everyone can commit to 20 minutes, especially if there’s a glass of Chardonnay afterwards.” 
—Kate Winslet

Wine Of The Week - Jo Mamma's White

 
My introduction to Noisy Water Winery and its wines happened on a sunny day about ten years ago. Walking through mid-town Ruidoso, I was intrigued by the sign on the sidewalk in front of what, upon a passing glance, seemed to be a t-shirt shop, pointing the way inside to “wine tasting”. Not aware that such a practice as “wine tasting” even existed, I decided to see what that was all about. And the first wine poured into my glass to taste was Jo Mamma's White. It was, to say the least, a life-changing experience.

At that point, I knew nothing about wine varietals; about acidity or tannins; about blends or bouquets or body; or what made wines sweet or dry. All I knew was that I really, REALLY liked what was in the glass. And I kept coming back.

Eventually, I kept coming back so much that they put me on the payroll. And while I've learned so much about wines in the years since and expanded my palate to enjoy drier wines (red as well as white), there remains a spot in my heart for my first Noisy Water love, Jo Mamma's White.

Jo Mamma! Sweet and simple, yet complex and beautiful. A true reminder of all the mammas out there.

A blend of Riesling, Gewurtztraminer, and Moscato grapes, Jo Mamma's White is undeniably sweet, with hints of apple and apricot giving it a summery orchard fruit finish. Yet it's crisp, with a clean refreshing finish, making it an enjoyable indulgence on a hot day. While it's clearly a wine made with sweet drinkers in mind, many dry drinkers enjoy the fun yet complex blend that has made Jo Mamma's White a multi-award winning wine since its introduction. An homage to all the mammas who encourage us to follow our dreams but be true to ourselves, it's a perfect “girls' night in” wine (because who needs to go out when you've got this wine in the fridge?)

This easy sipping wine is made for sharing over a platter of cheeses (try some of our hand-crafted New Mexico cheeses, available on our website and in our stores) and fresh fruits. It's also perfect for bringing a touch of summer to the dreariest winter days. Any day with a little Jo Mamma is a great day!

“Let us have wine and women, mirth and laughter, sermons and soda water the day after.”

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)

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!
