19 Feb Please The Palate Pick of the Week: The Paring Canned Wines – Chardonnay, Rosé, and Pinot Noir
When I think of going to a stadium for a sports game, I think of beer, hotdogs and pretzels. But at the Super Bowl at SoFi Stadium last weekend, attendees were drinking something better. And while I was not at the game, I was enjoying the same thing from my couch. I was drinking The Paring Canned Wines Chardonnay, Rosé, and Pinot Noir, some of the official wines of SoFi Stadium and the Please The Palate pick of the week.
Named after the Paring knife, the versatile knife favored by chefs in kitchens around the world, The Paring was born in 2006. Sourced from Ballard Canyon, Sta. Rita Hills and Santa Barbara County AVA’s, The Paring wines are made with the same pedigreed fruit that is used for the highly allocated Jonata wines and the hard-to-get The Hilt wines. The difference is that The Paring wines are made from vineyard blocks that are either too young or do not fit into the vintage style of the highly acclaimed JONATA and The Hilt wines.
The Paring Wines are extremely drinkable, offering vibrancy, texture, balance and overall deliciousness.
The Paring Chardonnay has fresh notes of citrus and apples, a lovely texture on the palate, and beautiful acidity.
The Paring Rosé is a bright salmon-pink color and has a flinty and red fruit notes. The crisp acidity makes this a perfect wine for a hot day.
The Paring Pinot Noir has a beautiful depth to the nose with aromas of dark red fruits and on the palate is smooth and elegant
The Paring wines are available by the bottle, but also in cans, which are environmentally friendly, easily to transport, and perfect for outdoor activities, such as football games at SoFi Stadium. The Paring is served in each of SoFi Stadium’s concession areas, where it is available by the can as well as by-the-glass from kegs.
Knowing the care Sofi Stadium put into their wine program, which focuses on Santa Barbara County wines, I hope to attend a live game at the stadium and I know that I will be drinking The Paring wines.
