  • 349

Occasionally we may need to substitute to 1oz YCH nitrogen purged hops.

A New Zealand powerhouse with ripe tropical fruit and wine-like aromatics.

Origin: New Zealand. Named for the Sauvignon Blanc grape, with which it shares some aroma characteristics. Nelson Sauvin™ is in demand for its fruity, wine-like aromatics.

Usage: 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 in new-school American IPA. Adds a lovely dimension to saison and wheat ales as well.

Aroma & Flavour Characteristics: Very complex. 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).

Botanical Classification:
Family: Cannabaceae
Genus: Humulus
Species: Lupulus

Alpha Acid Range: 12.0-13.0%
