 Featuring Cris and Her Favorite Wine 

Cris joined the Noisy Water fam 6 months ago and is ready to meet you at our Red River Tasting room! Red River is known for its outdoor adventure opportunities and tourism centric activities like skiing, hiking, horseback riding, and amazing restaurant options. When Cris is not wine tending, she spends her free time walking the shopping district and trying out all the good eats in town. Her favorite part about being on the Noisy Water team is the atmosphere of the tasting room where you can sit back, chill and enjoy the breezy mountain air at the large patio and deck! 

 

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

 

Cris's favorite wine is the 2020 Divine Intervention Moscato. He particularly like the light, CRISP, & fruity qualities of this sweet while and is the best to sip on with light meals.

 

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

apricot • sweet honeydew • orange blossom • honeysuckle

 

 

This divine wine radiates a golden hue and has an aroma of rich apricot and honeysuckle. Sweet honeydew and orange blossom flavors meet at the mid palate as delicately floral and tangy notes create an easy finish. 

  $24.00
 

PAIRING DIVINE INTERVENTION MOSCATO

Cris recommends pairing the Divine Intervention Moscato with chocolate or salmon salad and says that this wine mixes well with ginger ale and lime sherbet ice cream for a punch bowl party mix!

🍇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.

🍇Pairing Wine With BBQ 🍇

 

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.

Aside from winery tasks, in her free time Tiffany is a true Ruidoso resident as she loves to hike, camp and explore in the great outdoors with her nephews.

Divine Intervention

Tiffany's favorite wine is the Divine Intervention. She loves how crisp and refreshing it is, yet not overly sweet. She recommends treading lightly when sipping on this one because before you know it the entire bottle is gone.

🍇Do you collect your wine corks? Here are ways to use them: 🍇

 

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.

 Featuring Kyle And His Favorite Wine 

Kyle works at our wine production facility on our Cellar Rat Team helping oversee and ensuring all operations are completed properly and quickly. Aside from other winery tasks, he repairs any of our equipment that needs attention, definitely a jack of all trades and a great asset to our team. 

 

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 year old daughter, grabbing a beer with friends, riding his bike, and helping our winery be more productive and efficient. He describes our company culture as "eccentric, challenging and amusing!"

 

2018 Aglianico

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.

  $42.00
 

PAIRING AGLIANICO

Kyle enjoys pairing this wine with steak, fajitas, smoked gouda cheese or dark chocolate and likes to drink this wine with a cigar and friends around a fire.
