The white grape is a natural one mutation or subsequent selection of the red grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon, It was first in 1980 in the vineyards of the South Australian winery Clegett Wines in the area Langhorne Creek discovered by Malcolm Cleggett. A vine had (in addition to the normal red grapes) developed in one place two grapes with bronze berries. Cleggett planted cores and selected a total of 15 seedlings by 1984. This variety he called Malian (a combination of Malcolm and his brother Ian) and produced a bright red wine. After further selection and propagation, white-to-gold-colored grapes were obtained as a result in the early 1990s. Initially, Cleggett named the variety Cabernet Blanc or White Cabernet, but then had it registered under the name Shalistin. A varietal, dry, lemon-flavored white wine was introduced to the public in 2002. In 2010, however, no stock was reported (Kym Anderson ). Also in Australia is from one openly dimmed Cabernet sauvignon seedling the species Cygne Blanc emerged.
