Connor's Farm is the name of a highly regarded vineyard in McLaren Vale that Mike Farmilo and team setup years ago. Renowned for high quality fruit, the vineyard was recently sold to Treasury Wines Estate for millions of dollars. 

Mike - himself an ex-Penfolds winemaker - kept control of the Connor's Farm label though, and now makes red and white wines from all over South Australia, cherry picking the best fruit from a host of vineyards.

This Cabernet shows what Mike can deliver - a ripe and well built red from the Fleurieu Peninsula that has loads of dark berry fruits, chocolate oak and sure tannins. It's a full-flavoured red, in the proud South Australian tradition, with so much flavour.

Expert Reviews

94 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitWonderfully varietal and fragrant, the bouquet shows blackcurrant, dried herb, warm spice, floral and cedar characters on the nose. It’s equally satisfying on the palate with excellent weight and power together with refined mouthfeel and chalky tannins, making it sturdy and velvety at the same time. At its best: now to 2028. AU$24.00.
91 Points - Angus HughsonConnors Farm is a range of wines created by Mike Farmilo, ex-Penfolds winemaker and in a short time have gained a reputation for generosity of fruit and their easy-drinking style. This Fleurieu Cabernet follows the wines before it with its ripe and powerful fruits. It is deeply coloured and then has fruits of mulberry and blackberry jam plus a clear edge of dried and green herbs, thanks to well ripened Cabernet Sauvignon fruit. It is then dry, concentrated and even a touch earthy and savoury with layers of rippling fruit supported by supple tannins. A good winter red for sure with the stamina to match lasagne.
