Costing around £12 a bottle a new variety - Cabernet Cygne Blanc - is to be offered from a South African producer. The variety is a naturally occurring version of the Cabernet vine and produces an aromatic wine with a peachy character reminiscent of a white Rhône..

Wine International
"The vines with white berries produced their first fruit in 1991. “I was mystified, excited and decided to keep the matter secret,” said Mann, who produced the first five vintages in secret. In 1999 it was registered as a new variety, Cabernet Cygne Blanc. In 2000, Mann granted Port Robe Estate on the Limestone Coast an exclusive licence to produce the variety."

Are you sure Cabernet Cygne Blanc - is to be offered from a South African producer? I thought is was from South Australia -

You are quite correct; no idea where I got South Africa from at all...

The Mann vineyard is actually in the Swan Valley in Perth Western Australia. This is where the variety originated.
Mann sold the rights to Robe in South Australia to grow and produce wine.
The Robe vineyard is now for sale, see
