Green chile wine? It’s a surprising wine style that can only come from one place: New Mexico. Southwest Wines, the mega portfolio of wine brands in Southern New Mexico, blends a refreshing white wine with hints of New Mexico’s famous green chile to produce a wine with a true southwest flair.
It has sharp clarity with a faint aroma of green chile that seems to hit the nose perfectly. It’s strong enough to notice but doesn’t attack. It’s crisp and refreshing with just a touch of sweet. The finish is a bit abrupt, and this wine blend is mild, perhaps a shock for those expecting a kick of heat from the chile.
It all makes for a surprisingly drinkable wine that can be fun conclusion to a New Mexican feast. Try it with, you guessed it, green chile chicken enchiladas or a spinach cream cheese dip.
Who should drink this wine: Wine aficionados with an adventuresome spirit who are looking for a fun wine
