Riwaka™

Riwaka™


(4.5-6.5%AA)

A unique aroma hop with a powerfully fuelled tropical passion fruit character.

Breeding

Riwaka Brand 85.6-23 is a triploid aroma type bred during the development of New Zealand Hops with a difference programme through crossing "Old Line" Saazer with specially developed New Zealand breeding selections. It was first released by New Zealand's Plant & Food Hop Research Centre in 1997.

Selection

Riwaka™ is a real standout during selection especially when “rubbing up” for aroma scores its powerful grapefruit “citrussy” characters are literally breathtaking. This variety is  seen to have higher than average oil, almost double that of its Saazer parent.

Brewing

If you want to say “New Zealand Hops” in your beer than this variety says it all. The pure weight of the oil character experienced during selection carries right through to the glass. A punchy addition to the new world styles of Pales Ale and  New Zealand Pilseners.

Applications

A bold fruity hop variety suitable for big styles such as IPAs and Imperial Pilsners.
