Cannonball Eleven Sauvignon Blanc 2017

America, California
Cannonball  Eleven Sauvignon Blanc

ELEVEN Sauvignon Blanc was grown in the legendary Dry Creek Valley, a small AVA made of gravel and sandy loam soils characterized by warm breezes, rich alluvium, and well-drained visually stunning rocky red soils.

The warm days and cool evenings mature our grapes early in the season, and the long sunny afternoons enhance development of flavors in both the citrus and tropical fruit spectrums.


Primarily fermented in stainless steel to preserve the dramatic fruit attributes. A small portion is fermented in French oak barrels to create a blending component that adds dimension, and a subtle richness and depth that are rare and exciting
in Sonoma Sauvignon Blanc.
Vibrant aromas of guava, pineapple, and passion fruit continue onto the palate and are joined by waves of honeydew melon, tangerine, and lychee flavors. The mid-palate shows a lively acidity and soft floral notes leading to a pleasingly persistent 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!
