Lucca 2017 will be one of our best vintages produced to date. She’s a blend of near equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc, led by 52% Merlot clone MO343. The vineyard blocks that contribute to this blend grow in the middle of the well-exposed North-East facing slopes on Beau Constantia. The grapes were hand-harvested in the cold, early-morning hours, meticulously sorted and batch vinified. After natural fermentation on the skins, the wine has matured in 225L French oak barrels (68% new, 32% second fill) for 18 months prior to bottling
