You can’t for­get the name of this new wine

Central and North Burnett Times - - EASY EATING -

USU­ALLY when some­one for­gets the words they fill them in by just start say­ing la la la.

So maybe the mar­ket­ing ap­proach from the Win­gara Group with their lat­est re­lease wine is right on the money.

Win­gara Wine Group is part of Spain's Freix­enet Group, and par­ent to an ex­cep­tional fam­ily of renowned Aus­tralian wine brands from flag­ship la­bels earn­ing the high­est ac­co­lades, to ev­ery­day-drink­ing brands.

And it’s un­der the ev­ery­day drink­ing brands that they have re­leased La La Land Wines – an eclec­tic brand with an en­ter­tain­ing sense of es­capism.

Stylis­ti­cally, LLL wines are flavour­some and gen­er­ous, fash­ioned with creative flair. They are crafted by wine­maker Phil Spill­man, who spe­cialises in seam­less “drink now” styles. The ini­tial LLL of­fer­ing in­cludes a Tem­pranillo and Mal­bec, both from the 2013 vin­tage.

The Tem­pranillo fea­tures smooth­ness across flavours of black cher­ries, black­ber­ries and blue­ber­ries. It also re­flects lay­ers of rasp­berry, liquorice and mocha. Grapes have been sourced from Vic­to­rian vine­yards.

The LLL Tem­pranillo hums nicely with His­panic cui­sine-spicy chorizo, ja­mon and patatas bravas.

The Mal­bec fea­tures bold flavours and a broody per­son­al­ity.

It is all about for­est fruits, ex­otic spice, splashes of dark choco­late and a dash of vanilla.

It’s de­signed to drink now with lots of noisy friends and plates of pulled pork slid­ers and Ar­gen­tinean bar­be­cue ribs, this wine is equally happy to lay low, earn­ing com­pound in­ter­est over the next six years.

With a rec­om­mended re­tail price of $16, La La Land wines will be avail­able in re­tail stores from mid Au­gust 2014.
