Alfred Hitchcock Presents Chardonnay 2015
Lodi, California

To Catch a Thief (1955)
Currently Not Schedule!

Grace Kelly starred in three films by Alfred Hitchcock in the early 1950s, and all of them are classics. But here, opposite Cary Grant and the unbeatable scenery of the south of France, her talent truly shines. Enjoy this Chardonnay with hints of golden apple, honey and toasted vanilla while watching one of the Master’s great casting decisions.

THE WINE

Thanks to his distinctive directorial style, you know when you’re watching an Alfred Hitchcock movie. And the same should be true when you’re drinking a good California Chardonnay. Crafted with carefully selected grapes from the premium Lodi region and the excellent 2015 vintage, this limited-edition exclusive has all the hallmarks California Chardonnay fans crave. You’re in for layers of golden apple, acacia honey and a touch of toasted vanilla. Wellrounded and lusciously smooth, this will be the star of the dinner table – especially with simple seafood or creamy vegetarian dishes.

THE GRAPE

Chardonnay is the world’s most popular white grape, due to its attractive, mouthfilling flavors and ability to grow well in a range of climates. It performs most majestically (and expensively) in the vineyards of Chablis and Côte d’Or in Burgundy, but it also thrives in California. Depending on the site (and the ambitions of the winemaker), it can be rich and buttery or refreshing and citrusy. This lovely example lies between the two styles.

THE REGION

As Master of Wine Jancis Robinson says, “Lodi is a seriously interesting location for growing grapes.” Wine Enthusiast agrees – they named it their 2015 Region of the Year. Like Napa Valley, Lodi’s warm summer climate is tempered by occasional morning fog. While it’s better known for rich reds like Zinfandel, Lodi can also produce top Chardonnay with a ripe, orchard-fruit character.

WITH FOOD

Alfred Hitchcock had a famous love for food, and this tribute Chardonnay is equally food-friendly. We recommend serving it alongside simple seafood dishes (try poached salmon with a buttery sauce), though roasted chicken or pork would also be tasty. Vegetarians can enjoy it with “sweet” vegetables (like butternut squash or sweet potatoes), creamy pastas or soft cheeses.
