Kooyong Estate only make limited editions from tiny blocks of vine, a hectare or less, which yield deeply personal wines, highly eloquent of their terroir, aspect and clime. There are the pebbled ironstone soils of Farrago, which create an uncannily Burgundesque style of Chardonnay, redolent of grapefruits, mealy bran and wet flint. The precious half hectare at Faultline articulates the savouryness of seaweed and struck match. The sheltered lee of Haven Block encourages the grapes to bloom with chewy red jube characters. The windswept parcel at Meres infuses wonderfully perfumed rhubarb and ribena notes into a velvetine tannin structure. All are equally remarkable for their individuality, they speak..

HJ is the ultra premium flagship Shiraz, purposefully crafted at the Boar's Rock wineworks. A vigorous wine offering immeasurable girth of fruit, great poise, elegance and the strength of character to evolve majestically.

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.
