Product reviews
This is the third, and yet another fittingly beautiful Beau Constantia Lucca, a classic Bordeaux-style blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Franc. Only 25 barrels were produced from beautiful fruit of 9 to 10 year old vines, all planted on Beau Constantia farm. The incredibly healthy and optimally ripe grapes were hand-picked and berry sorted before being conveyed to the fermentation tanks. The cold soak, alcoholic fermentation and extended maceration on the grapes skins lasted for about 25 days before the grapes were pressed using a basket press and the wine transferred to barrel. The wine was then matured in 225 litre French oak barrels (95% new and 5% second fill) for 18 months prior to bottling.

Beau Constantia is a boutique wine farm situated at the top of Constantia Nek overlooking False Bay. Vines are planted to an elevation of 350 metres above sea-level on some of the steepest agricultural slopes in the Cape. These lovingly nurtured vines are spoilt with panoramic views of the Stellenbosch and Helderberg Mountain ranges and over False Bay as far as Hangklip.
