There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz.

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.
