The Winery Background

Earlier this year had an opportunity to visit the tasting room of Silver Trident. Beyond excellent wines, they provided a unique pairing with their wines – potato chips from around the world. Here is the link to this quick story:

The Wine -2019 Silver Trident Symphony No.9 Sauvignon Blanc

One of the wines purchased was their delicious 2019 No.9 Sauvignon Blanc. This made my annual list of Best Wines Tasted, for 2022 (published last week). A very unique Sauvignon Blanc. On the eyes, very pale straw in color, but it packed a startling punch. On the nose, floral scents of honeysuckle and mellow green apple. On the palate, soft embracing citrus of Meyer lemon zest, a hint of lime and blanched almonds. The finish provided a honeydew melon that was welcomed and provided a medium long conclusion to each luscious sip. The current release is the 2021 vintage and is listed at $36/bottle.

The Food and Wine Pairing

A light dinner last week with some fresh Ahi tuna, sashimi style. We were in Modesto and picked up almost three quarters of a pound from Ohana Seafood. Went with a modicum of wasabi and ginger in order to appreciate this wonderful, crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc.

Sláinte,

Michael

    We were in the wine club for a while. Excellent wines and nice people. Not a huge fan of the potato chips but maybe it’s because I remember the glorious bite pairings they did previously. I believe Kari Auringer is still the winemaker. She’s also at the helm at Cornerstone, another favorite.
