A long established celler, for four generations, the name of Clua has been associated with the production of wines and today is the latest generation, led by Xavier Clua who runs the viticulture and the winemaking side of the business. The family owned vineyards are located around the village of Vilalba dels Arcs, in the heart of the Ebre region in southern Tarragona. The soil is made up of calcareous clays, with low levels of organic material, but rich in elements that favour good drainage and the clime has influences both Mediterranean and continental.
Tasting Notes: Lovely nose of red fruits and spices, on the palate very succulent red fruit with a touch of well integrated oak, mature tannins and good acidity.
Notes: Best enjoyed over the next 2 - 3 years.
