Cannonball Chardonnay 2020

America, California

We love the vibrance and liveliness of fruit sourced from coastal vineyards in Mendocino, Monterey, San Luis Obispo, and Sonoma with their fog-blanketed mornings, sunny afternoons, and breezy evenings. Loamy soils and deficit irrigation coupled with sustainable farming practices provide balanced growing conditions and production of distinctive and superior fruit.

Bright fruit takes the lead with spiced pear, green apple, and lemon notes, underscored by a delicate floral scent. Toasty barrel aging elements are expressed as graham cracker, biscuit, and Dulche de leche.

Flaxen in color with the vibrant hint of green and sourced from our favorite sites in Californiaʼs Central and North Coasts, this Chardonnay displays an approachable and ever-food-friendly cool climate fruit profile. It's full and warm on the entry with floral accents, tangy lemon curd, and crème brulee notes. The mid-palate flaunts the smoothness of honeydew melon, the lifted acidity of juicy pineapple, and the richness of honey. On the finish, French oak aging is unveiled with notes of caramel, meringue and flaky pastry richness.

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!
