Description

Nelson Sauvin is a triploid dual-purpose variety bred from the New Zealand variety “Smoothcone” and released in 2000.  The variety is known for its white-wine “fruitiness” character that is very noticeable and distinctive in beer.  The essential oil profile displays “fresh crushed gooseberries” a descriptor often used for the grape variety Sauvignon Blanc, giving  rise to this variety’s name.

Form:

  • Type 90 Hop Pellets – 100g – single sale only due to limited global supply

Selection:

Described during selection as “breathtaking”   Nelson Sauvin has the unique ability to impart a distinctive cool climate white wine “fruitiness”. The complexity of the oils profile has seen selectors stretched looking for descriptors to document this unique new world variety.

Brewer’s notes:

A hop that may require judicious application in the brew house, this truly unique dual-purpose variety can be used to produce big punchy Ales as well
as subtle aroma driven Lagers. The fruitiness may be a little overpowering for the uninitiated, however those with a penchant for bold hop character will find several applications for this true brewer’s hop.

“Quintessentially New Zealand”

 Applications:

Very much at home in the new-world styles such as American Pale Ale and IPA’s. This hop is considered by some as being extreme and it certainly makes it presence felt in speciality craft and seasonal beers while having gained a considerable international reputation in recent times.
