This hop is described as "winy", because it gives to the beer the fresh and fruity flavours of a good white wine, combined with other rich balsamic notes, which are reminiscent of the Tropics with the richness and uniqueness of their fruits.
The name has indeed two references, one geographical and one wine: Nelson, from the name of the central area of New Zealand, from which this type of hop comes from; Sauvin in honour of its aromatic and tasting characteristics, which resemble the fresh and fruity flavours of gooseberry, a feature that is often used also to describe Sauvignon grapes (the very famous vine variety of Bordeaux area).
Obtained by modifying some plants of "Smoothcone" (New Zealand branch of Fuggle).
