WineDiva's Review

Value, snappy, quaffable.
Serious value and seriously tasty, this snappy Savvy is made by New Zealand's first Maori owned winery, Tohu, which was established in 1998. In Maori, Tohu means sign or signature. In all, the company produces not only Tohu and Kono wines (made from vines in Nelson and Marlborough), but farms Kono mussels and makes fruit bars and Tutu cider. They hold firm to the core value that love for the land and respect for the sea must be ever present; to prosper, the environment must be well and healthy, full of life and vitality.
The 2019 Kono is as lively as always; peach and crunchy green apples aromas are layered with elderflower, lime and snap peas. Quaffable and tangy and flavoured with gooseberry, citrus and passionfruit, this is a lip-smacking white that will put a smile on your face.

Who is Wine Diva?
WineDiva is my alter ego. She wears a cork tiara and is proof that a girl can have her w(h)ine and drink it too! WineDiva.ca is a tongue-in-cheek approach to my very serious passion for all things wine. It is my goal to make wine fun, to make this website subtly educational & deviously inspirational. Vintage reciting wine snobs beware, this WineDiva is painting the wine world pink and making it her own! Care to join me?
