One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale.

Nick grew up amongst some of the world's most sacred vineyards, he knows about the land and found a magnificent little site, barely east of Lake Colac. Irrewarra is the vigneron's shangri-la, prepared for viticulture by generations of grazing and eons of the sobering south sea breezes, which stimulate vines to yield meagre harvests of parched little grapes, sleek of tannin and rich in flavour.

The Taranga site overlooks McLaren Vale township. Along with good old gut feeling, which comes from years of knowing the vines and terroir upon which they are grown, state of the art computer controlled irrigation technology is employed to administer the optimum stress levels to the vine, translating into some of the world's finest Shiraz. Each block is individually nurtured depending on vine age, terroir and requirements of the winery. Most of Taranga's harvest is destined for other companies, only the pick of the very pick will find their way into HJ Reserve. The finished wine is matured thirty months in nothing but the finest, tightly grained, exclusively French oak barriques, half of which are completely new.
Deep, dark maroon colour. Excellent spicy lift, strong mocha and dark chocolate overtones in the bouquet. Super intense palate, showing the distinctive HJ restraint and finesse. A wine with impressive depth of fruit right through the middle palate. Selected from the best parcels of old vine Shiraz, HJ has been barrel selected and bottle aged for optimum flavour and enhancement.
