Nelson Sauvin is a highly prized, dual-purpose hop that has been used in a wide range of styles by craft brewers. Considered by some as 'extreme,' this hop is often used in specialty craft and seasonal beers. It has a distinctive aroma, similar to Sauvignon Blanc wine or crushed gooseberries. Notes of passionfruit and tangerine are apparent as well. Nelson Sauvin has a low cohumulone content, which imparts a smooth bitterness. Nelson Sauvin was developed at the New Zealand Hort Research Centre and was released in 2000.Statistics:
