Line Shack Wines Sauvignon Blanc San Lucas Monterey County 2007

Member Review by Gold Medal Wine Club:

Line Shack’s 2007 Sauvignon Blanc was produced from vineyards located in Southern Monterey County. In 2004, the Balentine family began their quest to produce world class Sauvignon Blanc from the well-known region, and decided on small estate vineyards in the San Lucas AVA in the foothills of the Southern Salinas Valley. This stylish, dry and refreshing flavored wine accurately shows the AVA’s unique characteristics and makes it easy to see why Line Shack has achieved Gold Medals with three out of their last four vintages. The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc was a Gold Medal winner at the Los Angeles International Wine & Spirits Competition. Its tangy aromas of citrus, pineapple and melon lead into crisp fruit flavors of grapefruit and guava before a clean, enjoyably refreshing finish. The complex flavors and nice balance achieved in this Sauvignon Blanc are qualities characteristic of the San Lucas AVA, and matched with Line Shack’s strict quality standards, the finished product is an impressive accomplishment. Winemaker Bob Balentine recommends serving the 2007 Sauvignon Blanc chilled with fresh cracked crab, fish, salads, and light pasta dishes. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. Enjoy now until 2010.

Our “Line Shack” was discovered in 1989 when our family aquired a small ranch in Chualar Canyon, Monterey County, California. The only building on it was a run down cabin we affectionately called the “Line Shack”. Soon this building was remodeled and it became a favorite place to gather and celebrate family, food and friendships. It also became the Tasting Room and extra Barrel Room when the garage became full. My wife Daphne and I began making wine 19 years ago after befreinding Italian Wine Maker and King of Radicchio, Lucio Gomiero who is the owner of two very successful Italian Wineries, Vignalta in Italy’s Veneto (perennial Tre Bicchieri winner) and La Fiorita, a winery that produced one of the highest rated Brunellos ever by Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar. it was under Lucios' guidence that I developed my palate and attention to detail so important in the production of fine wine.
