Product Code: HNNELF10


Origin: New Zealand

A variety named for the Sauvignon Blanc grape, with which it shares some aroma characteristics. Nelson Sauvin™ was developed at Plant and Foods Research and released in 2000. High enough alpha acid content to make it truly dual-purpose, but best known for its distinct gooseberry, white wine-like aroma. Nelson Sauvin’s lush tropical fruit character and low cohumulone levels have made it a favourite for IPA. Adds a lovely dimension to saison and wheat ales as well. Limited flowers available also.


CHARACTERISTICS

Striking and pronounced elements of cold-climate Sauvignon Blanc and freshly crushed gooseberries. Also look for Key lime, pine needles, earthy dill, and tropical fruit (lychee, papaya, passionfruit).
