Named after the Cistus, the spring-flowering rock roses growing wild in the scrub. 60% Syrah with 40% Grenache, the former mainly raised in old barrels from Château Haut-Brion (plus a few new barrels), the latter in tank.

Absolutely loving the sun case, what a great way to be introduced to new wines.
