    Nelson Sauvin

    Early trials with Nelson Sauvin immediately revealed it to be somewhat different in its brewing character than other hop cultivars. This variety imparts certain grape like flavours to the beer; flavours which have yet to be positively identified. To acknowledge this Sauvignon Blanc flavour the variety was named Nelson Sauvin.

    Used mainly for finishing German and American style ales and lagers. Aroma is mild and pleasant.
