Smokestack by Ar Fion Pinot Gris is so interesting and tasty. It has colour, almost rose-like colour which is natural since it was made with lots of skin contact and the skins of Pinot Gris have indeed got colour. There is a plumpness to this but it is also lovely and lean and dry with a bit of mouthwatering acidity and fresh skinn-y tannins that make it a delightful Gris well worth sipping. Chris Foster

Winery Note:

ARFION SIMPLY MEANS “OUR WINE” IN SCOTTISH GAELIC.

WE ARE A SMALL INDEPENDENT WINE COMPANY THAT HAS THE FREEDOM TO TAKE SOME RISKS AND DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. 

Growing up in New Zealand with Scottish heritage, I moved to Australia in 2006 and fell in love with the styles and potential of the Yarra Valley.  With the help of my brother Jimmy and father Brian, we established Arfion in 2011.  Our aim is to extend the limitations of style, be considerate to the grapes and land, and to be a strong part of the local wine community.

Arfion creates thoughtful wines with minimal winemaking interference under the Arfion and Smokestack Lightning labels. Intuitive, evolving wine styles that reflect our interpretations of each vineyard’s soil.

Single sites and small volumes.

Smokestack Lightning is a Blues track originally performed by Howlin' Wolf. An edgy song and genre that uses minimal input to create raw expressions. Generally just a guitar and a voice.

We like this kind of raw creativity. It’s easy to understand, transparent and endearing. 

We are inspired by it and would love to emulate these characteristics in our wine.

So the Smokestack Lightning range really is our play thing.

We can do whatever we want, so we like to explore skin contact and lo-fi procedures to produce distinctive vineyard expressions. 

Just the grapes and us.
