Drink Excellent now, or keep for 5+ years
Bright medium gold, with orange and green glints. The nose is herby and spicy, with notes of peach, apple, orange peel and cut lime, along with a gentle herbaceousness, redolent of cut grass and nettles. There's a touch of older oak and a subtle smokiness - and bags of schistey/saline minerality. It is certainly a wine for contemplation, and the more you sniff, the more it reveals. The palate is delightfully fresh, crisp and citrussy, not overtly rich, but beautifully clean and focused, with plenty of concentration countered by laser-like acidity. And that minerality and maritime influence really does manifest itself, in a really fabulous white wine.

Delightfully fragrant and grapey on the nose, with notes of tree blossom, oranges, apricots and a whiff of fine herbs (notably oregano). There's a touch of spritz, which settles down in the glass. Fresh, grapey and lightly citrussy in the mouth, with a hint of zesty orange. Medium-rich, and with some real depth, but remaining very refreshing. Finishes long, zesty and tangy. A serious Muscat.

A luscious yet delicate sweet wine, with 118 g/l of residual sugar and very lightly fortified, this has a medium gold colour - no deeper than a rich dry white. The nose offers notes of honey, apricot, orange blossom, lime oil and toasted almonds, with subtle hints of nettles, celery and garrigue herbs. Even after ageing for a year in new oak barrles, there is only the merest hint of an oak aroma. The entry is rich and honeyed, wit a gently oily texture ,with orange and apricot flavours and a delightfully spicy edge, redolent of fresh root ginger, cinnamon and clove. And then, all of a sudden, a burst of vibrant acidity appears as if from nowhere, and carries the wine all the way to a long, tangy finish. This is a really elegant wine, and not at all heavy - in fact, it is deceptively light and refreshing, as well as gorgeously sweet!

Described by winemaker Jon Hesford as "fermented in the presence of oxygen until dry, fortified with grape spirit and aged in a 2 year-old oak barrel with headspace, out in the sun". Basically, it was a batch of Muscat that "went wrong" (i.e. oxidised - hence the name) due to a technical fault with a grape press. Instead of sending the resulting juice to be distilled, Jon decided to experiment. The result is a wine that to all intents and purposes looks and smells like a slightly nutty (in both senses of the word) Muscat de Rivesaltes, a deep-ish orange/gold colour with orange marmalade and solera/flor-like notes, classic Muscat grapiness, a touch of honey, perhaps even a hint of digestive biscuit and a subtle herbiness. And whilst your nose prepares you for a sweet wine, the palate is very definitely almost dry, with only the fortifying grape spirit contributing a perception of "off-dryness". Conversely, the texture is quite rich and unctious, coating the mouth with delicious grapey, marmaladey, buttery/biscuity and nutty flavours, yet remaining steadfastly refreshing and distinctly tangy. This really is a wine for contemplation ,and the length, by the way, is immense - unlike Parker, I'm not one to put the stopwatch on, but we're talking minutes, rather than seconds. I could try and categorise it, but that would be unfair to a wine that is - albeit by accident, rather than design - pretty unique. In short, it is completely and utterly lovely.

Those who are familiar with Domaine Treloar's wines will know that the first (and until now only) vintage of MO2 was made in 2009. It was originally meant to be a dry Muscat, but - due to a cooling problem in the winery - the must became oxidised, thus rendering it unsuitable for making a table wine. So winemaker Jonathan Hesford decided to continue with the fermentation and make a fortified dry wine - something pretty unusual, if not unique, in Roussillon. And it turned out very well indeed - bone dry, but full of complexity and interest. Fast forward to 2013 and Jon decided to have another go - but this time, on purpose. And the result is somewhat different...... but equally interesting, if not more so. This one isn't *quite* bone dry, as we definitely have a few (but only a few) grams of residual sugar. That said, it has masses of interest and quirkiness - not to mention genuine complexity - with aromas and flavours of dried oranges and herbs, nuts, polished wood, eau de vie and all manner of vinous (i.e. non-fruit) nuances and earthiness - and a long, long finish that manages to be warming and cool/minty at the same time. As for what to pair it with..... well, I guess there are numerous possibilities! But is sure is good to drink on its own. An enigmatic wine, which everyone should taste at least once - if not more. A fabulous bargain!

An intense nose of jasmine, mandarin and apricot with hints of fennel, star anise and white chocolate. The flavours are rich and complex, but the inherent freshness on the palate is a joy to behold. There is of course a degree of richness, but it tastes grapey in the extreme, with subtle notes of cinnamon, clove, mandarin and lemon oil. And at just 15% abv, the added grape spirit goes almost unnoticed. Instead, what you get is a delightfully refreshing, intensely fruity, sweet, but relatively light fortified wine, with mouth-watering acidity that dances over the tongue and keeps you coming back for more. Achieving balance and elegance in a fortified wine requires very skilful winemaking, and this is an outstanding wine.
