๐Ÿ‡Pairing Wine With BBQ ๐Ÿ‡

 

It's officially warm weather season and that means it's time to fire up the grill! So let's find some wines that compliment different food types you'll be cooking on the barbecue:

 

Rule 1: Red wines pair excellently with barbecued grilled meats that are higher in fat like pork and beef. This is because the high fat content balances out the tannins in red wine. The BBQ sauce also is an important key factor when pairing with reds

 

Rule 2: For those who prefer leaner meats like grilled chicken and fish, simple yet sophisticated wines pair best. Think citrusy, light and crisp.

 

BBQ PORK

 

Red wines with a high fruit factor or even a touch of sweetness pair well alongside pork. 

 

BBQ BEEF

 

Wines that enhance the richness and pepper flavors in grilled beef make a great choice as their earthy mineral flavors complement red meat well.

 

Grilled Chicken & Fish

 

Use herbal, sweet and zippy wines to pair with lighter meats. Glaze sauces pair with sweeter wines and herb rubs pair with oaky and herbal wines.

๐Ÿ‡Do you collect your wine corks? Here are ways to use them: ๐Ÿ‡

 

There is nothing more satisfying than the sound of popping open a bottle of wine-and that's largely due to the cork bottle stopper! Cork maintains the quality of wine, as the material of cork does not taint the wine. Cork allows less than one milligram of oxygen to enter the bottle on a yearly basis and is the perfect way to seal a bottle shut. 

 

Humans didn't start using cork for this function until the 16h century and before that, cork was used for many different things. In the Mediterranean, cork was used in fishing nets and in boats, the ancient Greeks used cork in their sandals because it acts as a natural shock absorber, the Romans had plenty of uses for cork as well, including construction material, beehives, and floatation devices. 

 

Cork actually comes from the bark of a type of oak tree known as Quercus suber. The trees are not properly viable for cork production until they are between 15 to 25 years of age and once grown, the bark is stripped from the trees. This harvesting process does not injure the trees, as the bark regrows and continues its growth after harvest.

 

Harvesting from the Earth is the foundation of our business, and we understand that to take from the Earth, we have to give. Cork is a naturally occurring material and is completely biodegradable! While collecting corks in a jar is cute, there are plenty of ways to recycle your corks into eco-friendly and functional tools:

 
 
 

Mini Stamps

 

Use them to make thank-you cards, wrapping paper, or personalized stationery.

 

 

 

If you’re just not feelin’ crafty, there’s still something you can do with your used corks – take them to a local recycling location! Wine corks can be recycled and used in a variety of materials including flooring tiles, insulation, automotive parts, and sports equipment.

April Newsletter

 
 
 
 
 

Happy April you wine lovers! This month is great for embracing environmentally friendly practices and sustainable farming, as our family comes from a long line of farmers that have always believed that if you love the land, it will love you back. Our love of the land influences everything we do and our environmental conservancy led us to embrace sustainable farming early on. Over the years, we've experimented with rootstocks, trellising systems, viticulture techniques and are constantly adapting to the harsh and unpredictable desert climate of our vineyards. All of these things put together set us up to make the best possible quality wine possible. April is the season of getting to witness the beginning of new life, as our vineyard emerges into bud break, marking the start of a bountiful growing season that largely depends on the methods and practices that we utilize.

 

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! 

 

An Emergence of Life 

It is official, bud break has arrived! The season of Spring is officially here and the weather is getting warmer every day, creating perfect conditions for little baby buds to begin the early stages of a grape's life. Life on a New Mexican vineyard in the middle of the desert can be tumultuous on the vines and NM is prone to drastic weather changes overnight, so we are always on alert for a late season freeze that could significantly alter the growing course of the grapes! As soon as bud break occurs, the need to protect the young shoots from the deadly frost becomes a critical focus.

 

Vineyard farming is a type of farming that utilizes an older, and even ancient way of growing

 

 These methods are also sustainable and eco-conscious! We get back to the roots of winemaking in our farming practices, as this is what influences the production of a high quality wine. Here is what we do to ensure this:

 

1. Build healthy soil: Making sure our soil is rich in microorganisms and organic matter that nourish the plant

2. Conserving water & biodiversity: We use drip irrigation to carefully control our water usage, and this encourages healthy flora that improves the habitat overall.

3. Controlling vineyard pests naturally: Thankfully Engle isn't prone to too many pests, but we do have an abundance of tarantula hawks that have to be controlled. We use owl and bird boxes to manage and you will never find any sprayed pesticides in the vineyard. Neem oil has also proven to be effective in keeping small insects away from our vines!

 

 
Wine Of The Month:

2019 Skin-Fermented Chardonnay

Also known as skin-contact chardonnay, skin-fermented chardonnay, amber chardonnay, or orange chardonnay - is a type of wine made from white wine grapes where the grape skins are not removed, as is typical in white wine production, but stay in contact with the juice for days or even months. 

$30.00  $33.00
 

-Take 35% Off Full Cases-

& 20% Off Half Cases of 2019 Skin-Fermented Chardonnay all month long

Kyle's favorite wine is the Aglianico. Since he works in the production side of things, he has first hand experience and gets to witness the process up close! He says this wine tasted great right out of the barrel and that after each filtration, it only became more beautiful.

 

"Each day, we would gently caress the tank and softly whisper "good morning". Then follow up by playing soft, delightful music so we would not upset the molecules. No rock music was allowed to play during this time." -Kyle

 

At first taste you are hit with cherries, followed by a perfect blend of tannins and acidity, then a smooth finish with a hint of dark chocolate that makes you go back for another sip.

๐Ÿ‡St. Patrick's Day & Wine๐Ÿ‡

 

 St. Patrick's Day is a global celebration of Irish culture and originally was celebrated to honor Saint Patrick on the anniversary of his death. In the 1oth century, the Irish people held a great feast where they honored St. Patrick by dedicating a toast to him. This is where the association of enjoying a spirit on St Patrick's Day came from! Fast forward hundreds of years later, and the holiday is celebrated everywhere. Ireland is not known for the production of wine, but the Irish have a long history of drinking imported wine, especially from Bordeaux. In the eighteenth century, a number of Irish immigrants even moved to Bordeaux to produce wine! 

 

Why Is Green The Color of St. Patrick's Day?

Leprechauns are the reason you're supposed to wear green on St. Patrick's Day, or you risk getting pinched! The tradition is tied to folklore that says wearing green makes you invisible to leprechauns, which like to pinch anyone they can see.

 

 

๐Ÿ€Don't miss out on these Lucky St. Patrick's Day Savings! ๐Ÿ€

 

plus $1 Shipping on all orders over $99

 
2019 Nuevo Verde

Vinho Verde refers to Portuguese wine that translates as "young wine". Typically released three to six months after the grapes are harvested, which can be red, white or rose. Nuevo Verde is our homage to the great Vinho Verdes of Portugal with our own NWW New Mexican twist.

$27.00   $17.00
 
2018 Besito Caliente Green Chile Wine

We take our chile seriously in New Mexico - enough to put it in everything, including this BEST SELLING wine! Our unique New Mexican inspired Green Chile Wine is an off-dry white wine made with Hatch Green Chile.  A great compliment to any Mexican dish or party looking for a kick, think a spicy little semi-sweet kiss!

๐Ÿ‡What Are Wine Lees?๐Ÿ‡

 

If you have ever been surprised by the aroma of freshly baked bread in your glass of champagne, then you have found the "Suhr Lee" or lees, as we like to call it.

 

The term Suhr Lee refers to a specific aging technique: lees contact. Lees are the by product of the cellular self-destruction of yeast cells, called "autolysis." This leaves dead yeast particles that settle at the bottom of a tank! Our wines rest and age on the lees for a bit and then are racked, or separated, only leaving a small amount of lees in the wine itself. So why do we leave any lees behind at all? Because doing so can create rich complex flavors to a wine and can even improve the texture. 

 

๐Ÿ€Did you know that finding lees particles at the bottom of your wine glass is an omen of good luck? ๐Ÿ€

 
Bottled Chemistry

 

Lees are perfectly safe to consume and  are especially beneficial in white and sparkling wines, as they soften the tannins and enrich the flavors of the wine.

 

White and sparkling wines aged on lees are often described as creamier, richer, fuller-bodied, or with greater depth and complexity of flavor.

 

Red wines aged on lees are often described as rich, oaky with pronounced dark fruit and even spice flavors.

 

 

How Processing Wine and Lees Work Together:

 

Check out a few if our unique wines aged on the lucky lees:

 

2018 Vintner's Reserve Chardonnay

 

Oak aging and Chardonnay go hand in hand, as lees aging in oak barrels will diffuse additional aroma compounds from the wood, including sweet, caramel-like notes, smoke-like flavors, clove flavors, and vanilla.

 

Due to chardonnay's neutrality and hardiness, it makes for a perfect canvas to impart the flavors and textures that lees creates in a wine.

$27.00
 

2018 Dirty

The 2018 Dirty is unique when it comes to lees particles, as this wine is not fully filtered. Instead of filtering out the yeast immediately, the wine simply rests for a longer time (no shaking or moving the tanks!). This naturally settles yeast particles through gravity. After this point, the wine gets racked from the lees. 

 

Because of its less filtered quality, the body of the wine improves, and the small presence of lees particles only make it that much better.

Great wine is made at the vineyard. The Forbidden Desert Vineyard, our vineyard in Engle is one of the oldest in New Mexico, and the vines on the land are considered "old vines." This means that these vines have adapted to a changing environment for many years, which has made them durable and reliable every season. The lifecycle of a grapevine is something we get to witness every year, and it never gets old.

 

Winter

 

During this time of year, the vines are dormant. The vines utilize this time to hunker down for the cold months and they even have a built-in coping mechanism to survive the winter. The sugars that exist in the roots of the vines act as a natural antifreeze to the plant and ensures a healthy come-back in the Spring. One of the most crucial things we do at the end of Winter is prune the vines. This helps protect against over and underproduction of grape growth.

 

Early Summer

 

The wood of the grapevine continues to ripen, turning brown and hardening. While the wood grows, and sugar levels rise, little clusters of grapes begin to appear!  These clusters will soon become berry bunches, as they keep stretching out towards the warm sun.

 

 

 

Each season affects that year's vintage, so every wine is different, every year! Check out some of our favorite vintages from the last few years:
