Cannonball Sauvignon Blanc 2020

America, California

Our 2020 Sauvignon Blanc program took us across an exciting range of appellations encompassing the sunny Dry Creek Valley, windswept Monterey, and the lofty elevation of Lake Countyʼs Mt. Konocti neighborhood. Our Dry Creek Valley vineyard reliably delivers flavors in the tropical spectrum, rounded out by the citrus notes found in Lake County. Grounding and bringing dimension to the blend are the racy, crisp green notes contributed by sourcing where Montereyʼs ʻthermal rainbowʼ affords a spectrum of climatic influences, notably wind, that create just the right amount of stress to achieve balance in flavor and fruit chemistry.

White blossoms, citrus pith, and tender pea shoots frame more dominant notes of fleshy lychee and peach.

The crisp acidity keeps the palate lively and lifted with citrus and apricot on the palate that culminates in an attractive lingering mineral finish.

Winery Description

Cannonball Wine Company was founded in 2006 by longtime winemaker Dennis Hill and former attorney turned wine entrepreneur Yoav Gilat. Dennis is a Sonoma County native from a family with a long viticultural tradition in the region. The iconic label image of a child doing a ‘Cannonball’ refers to jumping into the water with your knees tucked into your chest in order to make a big splash and get your nearby friends as wet as possible.

The Cannonball name and label symbolize the uninhibited and pure spirit of a child having fun. This is the soul of Cannonball Wine Company: life - and wine - should befun! And it is exactly this pure and uninhibited spirit that animates Dennis and Yoav’s passion to produce honest, high quality wines at great prices that are fun to drink.

We hope a splash of Cannonball winewill make you smile like a big kid doing Cannonballs - and don’t forget to share a splash or two with yourfriends!
