Audi A7 Launch Party



Earlier this week I attended the Audi A7 Launch party hosted by Pfaff Audi at Miele. This was my 2nd such event (the first was back in 2009 for the Q5 launch). This time, they had several serving stations featuring Asian cuisine, as well as some roving appetizers (yummy bbq shrimp!). Also on tap were the Erdinger wheat ale and a grapefruit-flavoured beer (I forget the name). Both were impressive! Now, because this is a wine blog, on to the wines...


Both wines were from Vineland Estates Winery from the Niagara Peninsula (Ontario). I started off with the Pinot Grigio. Normally, I'm not a big fan of this grape - but this wine is delicious. More of an apertif, off-dry style with peach, lemon, melon aromas and flavours. Crisp and refreshing!

After that, I had a glass of the Elevation Cabernet. This wine I did not enjoy at all. Aromas of dark fruit, and cocoa. On the palate - pungent fruit, tobacco/leather, petroleum flavours. Maybe it was just a bad bottle, I don't know.

Otherwise, I enjoyed the evening and thank Pfaff for the invitation. Until the next launch...
