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.

 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.

  $42.00

🍇 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 😉

🍇Grafting Grape Vines🍇

 

Grafting is a propagation technique that allows us to alter the grape variety of the existing vines, which already have a developed root system, without uprooting and replanting the vines. This can be an economical way of changing a whole vineyard rather than re-planting. We start grafting vines before the bud begins to grow, so in late February for early varieties and early March for later varieties.

 

There are many grafting techniques that can be used. This one is called the cleft graft. It is for larger diameter vines and the scion must be dormant. There is a five step process for the cleft graft:

  1. Cut off the top of the vine about 30 minutes or so before grafting.
  2. Split the rootstock with a blade or chisel.
  3. Hold the split open and prepare the scions by cutting one end to a “v” shape.
  4. Place one scion on each side to fit with the cambium.
  5. Tape the split area together and use grafting compound to seal the splits to keep excess moisture out and seal moisture in.

Cris fits right in; she's funny, friendly and connects with you to make your trip to the Red River tasting room unforgettable!

Made from the Muscat grape, our 2020 Divine Intervention Moscato is a sweet wine that teases the taste buds with a subtle surprise of bright fruit. This wine will leave your tongue feeling invigorated and craving for more!

2020 Divine Intervention Moscato

🍇Pairing Wine With Cinco de Mayo Foods 🍇

 

 

Noisy Water Winery was founded in New Mexico, so our roots run deep within Mexican culture, as it is the most prominent heritage in our beloved border state. Today we celebrate the resilience, strength and unity of this heritage by sharing our favorite wine pairings with Cinco de Mayo inspired foods.

 
 

TACOS & WINE

2019 Nuevo Verde
$27.00   $24.00
 
 

When making fish tacos, more likely than not, your fresh fish tacos are going to come dressed in a sauce or vegetables and herbs; for this, our 2019 Nuevo Verde balances the spicy flavors of the tacos with its spritzy and acidic flavor profile. 

 

When making carne asada or ground beef tacos, the 2017 Zinfandel's rich, fruit-forward palate and robust tannins pair gorgeously with the fat and spice of these darker meats.

 

GUACAMOLE & WINE

2018 Pinot Grigio

Cinco de Mayo isn't complete without fresh guacamole, so we suggest pairing avocado dishes with a zesty white wine such as the 2018 Pinot Grigio. The mouth watering acidity in the wine cuts through the sweetness and fattiness of the fruit, making the pairing a total palate pleaser. 

$27.00
 

EMPANADAS & WINE

2017 Malbec

The 2017 Malbec is a good choice to pair with apple or other fruit empanadas for dessert because the mocha, molasses and tobacco notes of this dry red blend beautifully with the crisp crunch and the sweet jammy filling of this classic dessert.

$44.00   $36.00

🍇Bud Break, Fruit Set & Freezes-Why NM Weather Is Our Biggest Challenge 🍇

 

 

Bud break and fruit set is the most exciting time of the year for Noisy Water- it’s a beautiful time of year filled with anticipation of a healthy new crop of grapes to make delicious new wine with. The snow has melted, life all around us is in full bloom and you can feel the warmth of the sun on your face. The vineyard is pruned ready to take on the new season, but if you are from NM you know that the weather can be unpredictable and unexpected (as you can see from the last few weeks). The harsh and unforgiving climate where our vineyard resides looms at the back of our minds, as a late frost has the potential to destroy a crop of grapes before it begins, we truly are in the Wild West of grape growing.

 

For ice to melt, energy must be added to the ice and that energy comes in the form of heat. Once the ice is melted, the resulting water contains that energy. The amount of heat generated is small, but enough to get trapped between the green tissue and the ice and keep the vines protected.
