The Maori are the indigenous people of New Zealand. While there, I’ve seen them sticking their tongues out and yelling as a form of self expression.
But they also express themselves with a wonderful food company known as Kono New Zealand that features Wine, Seafood and Spring Water. One of my favorites is the 2004 Kono Sauvignon Blanc, which overflows with crisp, fungent aromas of gooseberry, white peach and pineapple. Sound delicious? It is. Plus, purchases of this wine help develop and educate the Maori community.
