The white grape variety is a natural one mutation or subsequent selection of the red grape variety Cabernet Sauvignon, It first appeared in the area in 1980 in the vineyards of the South Australian winery Clegett Wines Langhorne Creek discovered by Malcolm Cleggett. A vine (in addition to the normal red grapes) had developed two grapes with bronze-colored berries in one place. Cleggett planted kernels of it and selected a total of 15 seedlings from it by 1984. He called this variety Malian (a combination of Malcolm and his brother Ian) and used it to produce a light red wine. After further selection and propagation, white to golden colored grapes were then obtained as a result in the early 1990s. Cleggett initially named the Cabernet Blanc or White Cabernet variety, but he then registered it under the name Shalistin. A pure, dry white wine with lemon aroma was presented to the public in 2002. In 2010, however, no holdings were reported (Kym Anderson ). Australia is also out of one openly bloomed Cabernet Sauvignon seedling the variety Cygne Blanc emerged.
