  • About the Wine:
    The “Sectio Aurea” or “Golden Ratio” is the mathematical theory behind aperiodic tiling that is a Penrose design. This type of design is very commonplace in Portugal and Spain where the Moorish influence is reflected in many of the architectural structures and features of historic buildings. Carter Estate PENROSE is a blend of Portuguese and French cultivars, united with the intention that the “Golden Ratio” can be achieved in wine, especially when the elements of the blend are balanced and cohesive. Together the wine and the design embody the rich heritage and feel of Portugal.

    Our Carter Estate PENROSE shows a very exotic fruit aroma of spiced black cherries and raspberries, with deep layers of plum and blackberry. The Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Verdot add a dimension of forest floor; leafy, with a sweet earthy warmth. A solid, but supple note of French oak (imparted from 18 months of barrel aging) rounds the fruit and gives richness to the wine. This wine truly delivers what the nose has discerned. The structure of the wine is fleshy and full bodied, with perfectly balanced acidity and tannins, plus bold fruit flavors that linger on and on.

    PENROSE captures the fundamental splendor of Tinta Roriz and Touriga Nacional, two unique cultivars that are part of the inherent beauty which make up the wines of Portugal. Discover a different part of the world, discover PENROSE and find out what you have missing.
