They agreed provided we purchased sufficient quantity, so we sent them the wording " Day/Night Test Match Aust v SA - Adelaide November 2016" which is printed on the ball and here it is. This is a genuine hand stitched, leather cricket ball made by the official supplier of the pink match ball and as far as we can determine, and according to Kookaburra, is unique. We couldn't fit the ball in with twelve wines so needed to change the twelfth man who was determined to be Hungerford Hill, on count back.If you have already purchased The Adelaide Wine Show Dozen and have no further need of wine but would like a Pink Adelaide Day/Night Test Commemorative Cricket Ball, you can purchase one as a single item in the Gift category and by using the special coupon we've sent you, you will be able to purchase at a special price.The Adelaide Day/Night 1st XI is a great selection of wines representing regions including Margaret River, Yarra Valley, Pyrenees, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare, Langhorne Creek, Adelaide Hills and Limestone Coast.

We approached the Kookaburra team who are official suppliers of the Pink match ball for the 2016 Day/Night Test in Adelaide and asked if they could once again produce a commemorative cricket ball for us. They agreed provided we purchased sufficient quantity, so we sent them the wording "Adelaide Day/Night Test Match Aust v SA - Adelaide November 2016" which is printed on the ball and here it is.

Kirrihill Regional Selection Clare Valley Riesling 2016. 18.5 points, Gold. This is a bright and aromatic wine demonstrating fragrant lime cordial, freshly squeezed lime juice, hints of camomile and orange blossom. The very complex aromatics carry over to the palate providing a lovely line of fruit perfectly balanced with the nervy, mineral like acidity. A focused wine that exemplifies the purity of this noble grape variety. This wine is best enjoyed in its youth but will further reward with 3-5 years of bottle age.Class 17. Hahndorf Hill GRU Grüner Veltliner 2016. 18.5 points, Gold. Really pleased to include this relatively new variety. This winemaker’s Veltliner was rated the best Grüner Veltliner in the world outside of Austria in the 2013 International Grüner Veltliner Tasting in Vienna. The wine has an enticing nose of citrus, spice and stone fruit with a wonderfully vibrant palate of stone fruit, grapefruit and an unctuous citrus core that is offset by a long, slaty mineral tail and the all-important gentle rub of texture. Perfectly matched with all Asian cuisine, white meats, sea-foods and vegetarian dishes. Should develop splendidly for 5-7 years.Class 11. Millbrook Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc 2016. 18.5 points, Gold. Great to have this outstanding example of Margaret River sauvignon blanc in the selection. Quite pale in colour with very intense tropical passionfruit, lemon and lime juice aromas. The dry, very well balanced palate reveals crisp acid, intense and lingering fresh tropical passionfruit characters with an underlying lime-citrus note. Great to have now as a drink or an excellent accompaniment to seafood and Chinese dishes.Class 17. Bremerton Special Release Fiano 2016. 18.8 points, Top Gold. This exciting new variety which is so well handled by Bremerton at Langhorne Creek also won Gold at the 2016 Australian Italian Varieties Wine Awards. It is aromatic and intensely flavoured, giving fresh lifted citrus curd notes balanced by a well-structured palate showing textural nuttiness and fresh acidity. If you’re looking for an alternative to chardonnay this may well be it. Excellent to drink now but will reward careful cellaring for 2-7 years.Class 13. Sandpiper Eden Valley Pinot Gris 2016. 18.5 points, Gold. Great to have an Eden Valley presence from this winemaker in the selection. Typical of the variety from this region, the wine is very pale straw with some green tints in the glass. Strong varietal characters with bright, lifted aromas of nashi pears and spice lead to a palate exhibiting pear-like flavours with a clean citrus acid structure. A clean and lingering finish makes this wine a great refreshing drink or it will go well with any light food dishes.Class 14. La Boheme Missing Act Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 . 18.7 points, Top Gold. We always look to include one or two wines which push the boundaries. Here’s one! The “Friend” referred to on the label is sangiovese from De Bortoli’s Brunello cloned vineyards and according to the winemaker is 13% of the blend. Our first Yarra Valley red and the only acknowledged cabernet and sangiovese blend. Something the French and Italians could never agree to do! This is the first release that includes a portion of whole bunch Cabernet and shows real depth, leafiness and the slightly grainy charm that is so drinkable in modern style Cabernet. You will see that the sangiovese adds structure similar to that of shiraz in the famous cabernet shiraz blends. Excellent drinking even at this young age but will reward careful cellaring 5-10 years.Class 29. Jacob's Creek Limestone Coast Reserve Shiraz 2015. 18.8 points, Top Gold. Highest ranked wine in a huge class of several hundred wines! Hats off to the winemaker! It is truly remarkable that wine of this quality can be produced in such large volumes and marketed for the price. Proves once again that you don’t have to be wealthy to enjoy excellent wines. The crimson colour of this wine gives a hint to the intense flavours that come from the Limestone Coast region in South Australia. You’ll taste rich ripe plums and rich fruitcake, making it the perfect choice for red meats like eye-fillet of beef. You can enjoy now or cellar for 5-7years.Class 25. Hugo Cabernet Sauvignon 2014. 18.5 points, Gold. Always look to include McLaren vale in the selection and this wine is a great example of cabernet from the region. Has an attractive deep ruby red colour leading to ripe plum and dark berry fruits complexed with woody herbs, violets and a touch of sweet vanillin from the oak maturation. The palate is rich, showing mouth filling plummy fruit, dark chocolate with plush mid-palate fruit and soft, fine tannins. The oak is well integrated and supports the rich fruit flavours while adding complexity. You can confidently put this one away for 5-10 years if you enjoy age on your cabernet.Class 48. Shingleback Local Heroes Shiraz Grenache 2015. 18.7 points, Top Gold. This McLaren Vale wine also won gold in the recent NZ International Wine Show. Has an attractive bright magenta red colour leading to perfumed berry fruit aromas. The shiraz contributes blackberry, strawberry and spice to the blend, whilst the hand-picked, old bush vine grenache adds fragrant sweet fruit and savoury notes. Maturation in older oak allows the true varietal characters to show through. Excellent drinking now but you will still enjoy this wine from now to 5 years.Class 45. Barry Brothers Shiraz Cabernet 2015. 18.5 points, Sole Gold. Always great to include the Clare region in our selection and this wine, being the only gold medal winner in its class certainly deserved a spot. This wine is a deep purple in appearance with scents of liqueur cherries, blackberry, blood plum, aniseed and spice. As it opens up, the wine displays lifted violet floral notes. On the palate, there are juicy red fruits of cherry, plum and raspberry, with hints of earth and savoury herbs. This wine displays a brightness complemented by supple tannins and a persistent finish. You can enjoy now or put it in the cellar for up to 7-10 years.Class 32. Blue Pyrenees Richardson Shiraz 2012. 18.7 points, Gold. Well, I just had to include this one, no matter what the price. Fortunately the winemaker was able to make a small quantity available but there’s no guarantee it will be sufficient to meet longer term demand, so if you think you’d like more, re-order quickly! The deep ruby red colour gives the first hint of the richness you are about to encounter. The aromas are of blueberry fruit, pepper, cinnamon and forest floor flavours which are fruit derived but they have been crafted into a wine of great complexity by multiple methods of extracting the colour, flavours, and tannins from the grapes. The palate explodes with spicy blueberry fruit, sweet oak and vanillin with some earthy undergrowth characters. The integration of all these flavours in mixed oak also adds to the structure and tannin, creating a long savoury aftertaste. Extremely complex and worth every penny of its retail price (north of $55 if you can find it). Enjoy it now but you can also confidently cellar for a further 5-10 years.
