Torrent Negre

Torrent-Negre

Three carefully selected grape varieties go into the blend of this wine, which combines the power of Cabernet Sauvignon, the elegance and finesse of the Merlot, and the aromas of the Syrah. The result is a highly concentrated, modern style and very expressive wine. It is aged for 12 months in new French, Caucasian and American oak barrels. It is then left to round out in bottle over time.
