    … A new label, which is very cute and clever and appropriate for the month of Movember; I wonder - is this what comes after the critters? From what I can find, Tom Rogers is the composite of Tom Hill and Jason Rogers. 14% alcohol, approx $A30. Yarra Valley, 35% whole bunches. I'm not completely convinced, finding this is a little too big and top…
