Torrent Negre – Selecció Privada Syrah

Torrent-Negre-·-Sel.-Privada

Syrah single varietal wine which is only made in years when the grapes are of exceptional quality. The number of bottles produced is very small (300 to 1,500 bottles) – you could say that they are the “caprice of the wine producer”.
