Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival 2010

So this year at the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival 2010 it was New Zealand and Argentina Showcase! This is some Random Tasting notes, Way to many wine and I went to one day for tasting ah well.

Must say I am starting to like NZ Sauvignon Blancs Again, Riesling pretty good too, and Pinot Gris.  Pinot Noir always fantastic.  Elephant Hill has impressed me two years in a row so that gets abig thumbs up.  Another thing I found out is that I really do enjoy hawkes bay Chardonnays! Really good from a number of producers, stone paddock, and some other one I cant think of
