Camino Alto means high road (or street) in Spanish. On the Toledo part of the Meseta, the high plains of central Spain, we find a winery by that name, a winery that is dedicated to organic cultivation. Though I’ve been in touch with them for a while I have not visited them yet, and I have tasted only one wine. But that wine was so much to my liking that I decided to feature it as this week’s wine.
(Yes, it’s been a lot to do lately, so I must come back with a little more text here too.)
Camino Alto Tempranillo 2015 (Camino Alto)
Dark red with youngish blue hue. Aromas of violets, blueberries and … Quite concentrated, with a nice dryness from the young tannins, and an appropriate acidity.
Food: Goes well with Spanish tapas, from cured hams to cheeses and vegetables, anchovies and more
