Description

  • Dry style
  • Apricot
  • White florals
  • Refreshing acidity

"Offering gorgeous fruit purity and vibrancy, the wine shows apricot, Nashi pear, apple and white floral aromas on the nose. The palate delivers excellent weight and roundness together with silky texture and refreshing acidity, making it instantly appealing and highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Dec 2020

Fresh, crisp and floral with lovely fruit purity and balance. An easy drinking, dry style pinot gris which sings Central Otago as clearly as the Welcome Swallow’s twittering, chattering call.

The Welcome Swallow gained its name as its appearance heralds the start of Spring. The 2020 season started dry and cool in Central Otago, and was followed by warmer temperatures throughout summer and a lovely ripening period in autumn. This resulted in smaller flavourful berries and lovely quality of fruit.

Often seen darting around the southern lakes and rivers, the Welcome Swallow is known for its penchant to twitter and catch a sip on the fly. Inspired by this swift and graceful bird, Fast Flying Wines Limited, a family owned Central Otago winery, is proud to introduce this pinot gris to the Welcome Swallow range.

Food Pairing: With or without food, this vibrant and delicate pinot gris is perfect for enjoying with a flock or when flying solo. Enjoy with fish, chicken or spicy thai-style dishes.
