Vintage: 2023
Region:  Willamette Valley, Oregon, United States
Viticulture: Organic
Grape varieties: Riesling and Gewurztraminer

Maloof Wines L’eau Epicée Pét-Nat is a light and playful aromatic sparkler made from Riesling and Gewurztraminer. The team starts by making three lots of still wine. Riesling is pressed and fermented in stainless steel. The Gewürztraminer is split into two treatments. Some of it is direct-pressed, while the remainder is destemmed and fermented on the skins until dry. Over the winter, once all three lots go dry, they assemble into a single tank, and add some freshly thawed Riesling must that was held back and frozen from crush.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

About Maloof Wines L’eau Epicée Pét-Nat

Maloof Wines L’eau Epicée Pét-Nat is a light and playful aromatic sparkler made from Riesling and Gewurztraminer. The rustic style is like Col Fondo Prosecco, where a small amount of sediment remains in the bottle. The team starts by making three lots of still wine. Riesling from an unnamed home vineyard they refer to as Ony’s Roadside Attraction is pressed and fermented in stainless steel. The Gewürztraminer from the same site is split into two treatments. Some of it is direct-pressed and fermented in stainless steel, while the remainder is destemmed and fermented on the skins until dry, then pressed off and moved into neutral French oak barrels and stainless steel. Over the winter, once all three lots go dry, they assemble into a single tank, and add some freshly thawed Riesling must that was held back and frozen from crush. After a couple of months of resting in tirage, et voila! Bubbs!

About Maloof Wines

Maloof Wines is a husband-and-wife winery team based in Forest Grove, OR. Ross and Bee are dedicated to making wines full of energy, with the number one goal of truly capturing a place and time in each bottle. The couple works closely with farmers to achieve this goal and considers them to be the true inspiration of the winery’s work. Ross and Bee are focused on producing single-vineyard wines of often overlooked or misunderstood white varieties, in addition to making some fun and funky cuvées of all colors.

A true yin and yang team. One, a materials engineer grounded in hard science, and one a restaurant professional with a sensory-aligned M.O. Two nerds with a penchant for good hospitality and properly fermented pizza dough. Bee Maloof represents the hard science behind the project. Before playing with grapes, she worked for close to a decade as a materials science engineer within the aerospace industry. As a long-time lover of food and wine, Bee turned her scientific eye from rotorcraft to winemaking during the 2016 harvest. Ross Maloof broke into the production side of the wine industry initially by traveling to Oregon to visit some friends and ended up working harvest in the Willamette Valley. Before getting his first taste for winemaking, he worked for just over a decade in the Philadelphia dining scene, with a huge focus on the beverage side.

Maloof Wines has been making juice since 2015, and today is proudly produced alongside their best pals from Fossil & Fawn at the estate vineyard, No Clos Radio, just outside of Forest Grove, OR.
