Nelson Sauvin’s name is derived from the Sauvignon Blanc wine grape to which many agree has similar flavour and aroma characteristics. Nelson Sauvin has found significant use among craft breweries and home brewers for its eccentric characteristics.
The variety has gained popularity in American-style Pale Ales but is definitely a hop that requires prudent and discerning application in brewing. Nelson Sauvin’s oil profile is complex and fortunately works well as an aroma hop, flavor hop and also for bittering.
