TN : Sandalford Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008, Sandalford Wines Pty, Margaret River, Australia

The fruit for this wine came exclusively from a 37 old, dry-grown Margaret River Estate vineyard. After crushing and de-stemming, the fruit underwent fermentation in small ten tonne static fermenters. The traditional method of pumping over was employed during fermentation to optimise colour, flavour and tannin extraction. Post-ferment, the wine was left on skins for two weeks prior to pressing. The pressings were mixed back with the free-run wine and then inoculated for MLF with selected bacteria. After the completion of MLF, the wine was racked and transferred to both new and one year old French oak for 18 months. At the end of barrel maturation the various wine components were blended, fined and given minimal filtration prior to bottling.

This wine was sealed with a screwcap.

This wine was awarded 94 points out of 100 in James Halliday’s Top 100 Wines (Australia’s best white, red and sparkling wines), The Weekend Australian Magazine, 13-14 November 2010, page 23.

This wine was imported by Carovin AB.

Despite his well-known autocratic, acerbic, and arrogant management style, Steve Jobs is the Apple superhero who remade four industries - computer, music, movies, and mobile telephones - that already existed when he, in a heretical fashion, decided to enter, touch, and turn them into gold for Apple. This 4-industry leadership represents an outstanding feat that could be a cut above those of other American industry greats like Ford, Hilton, Rockefeller, Carnegie, or Lauder. London If you're fresh out of college, your resume is going to look different than an executive with twenty years under his belt. You need to find a format that fits your needs. A new graduate will likely have his college listed first and then go into details about past internships, jobs, and skill sets. For those who have been out of school for several years, schools should be listed last. Also, you should be able to fit everything on one page, unless you have a few decades worth of relevant experience.
