Origin: New Zealand. A new variety named for the Sauvignon Blanc grape, with which it shares some aroma characteristics. Nelson Sauvin is now in high demand worldwide.

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

Aroma & Flavor 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).
