Maui a supernatural being who snared the sun, tamed fire and whose most famous feat was fishing with a fish-hook made from magical ancestral jawbone. Where he caught a whale which turned into the North Island of New Zealand.
We honour Maui, New Zealands most beloved legend with the Whale Islands brand and the representation of the Magical Fish-hook on the Whale Islands Labels. The Fish hook represents the Hawke’s Bay, where on alluvial outwash and dried river beds we farm the Moana Park and Whale Islands wines.
The wines have been specifically developed with the Asian palate in mind. They provide a great compliment to premium New Zealand Seafood and meat dishes.
