Nelson Sauvin’s name is derived from the Sauvignon Blanc wine grape to which many agree has similar flavour and aroma characteristics. Developed in New Zealand and released in 2000, it is considered too wild for many major brewers. Despite this, Nelson Sauvin has found significant use among craft breweries and home brewers for its eccentric characteristics.

Nelson Sauvin has gained popularity in American-style Pale Ales but is definitely a hop that requires prudent and discerning application in brewing. Fortunately, its complex oil profile works well as an aroma hop, flavour hop, and bittering. Low co-humulone is responsible for its smooth bittering qualities. It is descended from Smoothcone.
