Apparently tied up with 'culture preservation initiatives' - presumably out of their consolidated fund. A little bit like Maori TV, perhaps?

According to the article whale meat is still considered a delicacy by the older generation, who undoubtedly have the financial and political clout.

I reckon it's just the Japanese raising their middle fingers to percieved cultural imperialism.

I dunno, if its kinda meaty, (like say albacore tuna or ocean run salmon) then a big wooded Chardonnay?

or even (if its "red" enough, a (getting a bit adventurous) Pinot Noir?

As it sounds like it's eating fishy rubber I'd suggest straight vodka beforehand.

I think the right drink would be a shot of rum dropped in a glass of tui. Now there's a good drop :eh:

We are talking fine wines to accompany whale meat here - not something to wash down student spagetti bolognaise...

There is a nice one coming out of Matakana, I had some last week. Otherwise a Pinot Noir would be a good, if some what safe, choice.
