McLaren Vale, SA.
HJ was a lover and a fighter. He fought to win the affections of his sweetheart Marjorie, before serving in WWII. He then fought to realise his vision of seeing the Taranga property produce only high quality grapes. This commenced with his planting of the ‘Old Block’ Shiraz in 1948 – the same McLaren Vale vines that form the base of this reserve Shiraz today.
