Nelson Sauvin Hops (NZ)

The name Nelson Sauvin is derived from the Sauvignon Blanc wine grape, because it shares the same fruity flavour and aroma characteristics. Developed in New Zealand and released in 2000. Since then Nelson Sauvin has found significant use among craft brewers and home brewers for its eccentric characteristics. Many large breweries do not venture using it, because it is usually considered too wild.

This variety has gained popularity in American-style Pale Ales, but it is definitely a hop that requires thoughtful and deliberate use in brewing. Nelson Sauvin’s oil profile is complex and fortunately works well as an aroma hop, flavour hop and also a bittering hop. Low cohumulone is responsible for its smooth bittering qualities.
