The Last Shepherd Gisborne Chardonnay 2017 $19.99

Toast? check.  Roast peach? check.  Buttery textures? check.  Nutty layers? check.  Gisborne-ness? Quadruple check.  Here’s a chardonnay that literally ticks all the boxes for a good time, especially if you’ve got a hankering for quality, old-school, East coast, toasty, roasty, buttery-chards.  What it lacks a little in length and complexity, it totally makes up for in instant sippability and crowd-pleaserness.
