Organic New Zealand Nelson Sauvin Pellet Hops
12% Ave. AAU. This new and unique variety was bred in New Zealand and released in 2000. Named for its aroma which is remarkably similar to the fresh crushed gooseberry aroma of a Sauvignon Blanc grape. Nelson Sauvin has the unique ability to impart a distinctive cool climate white wine “fruitiness”. Offers both a refreshing green grapes flavor, hints of pineapple, with a touch of earthiness to balance the flavor profile. This dual-purpose variety can be used to produce big punchy Ales as well as subtle yet bitter Lagers. The fruitiness may be a little overpowering for the un-initiated, however those with a penchant for bold hop character will find several applications for this true brewer's hop. A must try incredibly unique hop, and there is really no recommended substitute although it shares characteristics with Cascade, Centennial, or Chinook.
