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.
