La La Land Vermentino is on the lighter side for the variety. But still shows off Vermentino’s apricots and floral notes. As well, you do get a bit of the pulpy richness on your tongue if you don’t serve it too cold. But, La La Land Vermentino is a pretty good wine to serve cold and enjoy the refreshment of the bottle with some BBQ prawns.
From the wine family that brings you Katnook Estate, you get La La Land. An eclectic collection of new generation wines from estate vineyards. They make wines from Mediterranean varieties and other grapes that love the sun and heat. The style is flavourful, juicy, easy-going.
The Murray Darling is the second-largest wine region in Australia. It straddles the Murray River in north-west Victoria and western New South Wales. The biggest plantings are of Chardonnay. However, alternative varieties are the second biggest group of plantings. There are interesting things happening from some old and new producers.
An impressive white grape suited to warm coastal regions from Liguria down to Bolgheri and Sardinia. Rich aromatics and great texture. Personally, I think Vermentino is the next big thing. Mainly because it is delicious, but it also grows well in the Australian climate. And it ticks boxes for lovers of Chardonnay, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris.
