Cleggett Wines at Langhorne Creek, South Australia is the proud home of two world first cabernet sauvignon grapes, Malian (bronze/pink grapes) and Shalistin (white grapes). The two different coloured grapes evolved naturally and are indigenous to Australia.

A chance discovery of pinky bronze fruit on a Cabernet Sauvignon vine in 1977 provided Mac Cleggett the opportunity to propagate this single cutting at his Langhorne Creek vineyard. This Bronze Cabernet Sauvigon grape is registered as Malian.

Several years later through the same process of nature the White Cabernet Sauvignon grapes was identified and subsequently registered as Shalistin.

The full range of Cleggett Wines is available for sale at their cellar door on the main road between Strathalbyn and Langhorne Creek - clearly signposted. From Wellington and Mt Barker follow the Fleurieu Way approximately 1km (on the left) from the Langhorne Creek hotel towards Strathalbyn.

The purpose built modern cellar door is the perfect place to show off their unique wines. Wine tastings are free of charge and Vineyard platters and cheese platters are available Friday to Sunday
