A blend of Grenache (65%), Cabernet Sauvignon (20%) and Syrah (15%), Clua Mile·lennium is produced by Celler Xavier Clua from three parcels of vines with clay-limestone soils and located near Vilalba dels Arcs, DO Terra Alta.

Traditionally vinified, this Spanish red wine was macerated for 25 days and fermented under controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Then Clua Mil·lennium 2018 was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

Once bottled, this red wine from Terra Alta was aged for a further 12 months before being released onto the market.
