The 3rd installment of wines from the Wine Society and Morrisons.

The Society’s Pinot Grigio 2008 (Lorenzon), IGT Venezia Giulia, Veneto, Italy (£7.95/£7.08 The Wine Society)
Starts of nice and cream, with fresh apple, pear and nectarine flavours and even a touch of (yes) aspirin, but just let down by a slightly flat finish. B-

The Society’s Muscadet Sèvre-et-Maine sur Lie 2008 (Chéreau-Carré), Loire, France (£6.50 The Wine Society)
Has a bracing Atlantic briny tang, but it’s backed up with lots of green apple, citrus and bready/yeasty character. B+

The Society’s French Dry White Pays d’Oc 2009 (Domaine du Bosc), Languedoc, France (£5.75/£5.17 The Wine Society)
Some zippy pear and ripe citrus, almost Bordeaux-like, just a touch soft, almost too friendly, needs a little more zest to keep it fresh. C+

Montana Sauvignon Blanc 2008, Marlborough, New Zealand (£8.19/£6 Morrisons)
All zip and zest, clean, green and grassy, with a touch of green pepper, but it’s in balance with the riper edges. B+
