About: Bodegas Saura is based in Caravaca de la Cruz, one of eight different municipalities that make up the Bullas DOP, located in the region of Murcia. In 2008 the Saura family acquired an agro-forestry farm in the Sierra de las Cabras mountains.The family’s main aim was to recover the neglected vineyards around the town of Caravaca de la Cruz, where they embarked on environmentally responsible traditional and ecological management, 100% organic and natural cultivation.
The winery’s coat of arms features the heraldic symbol of the Saura surname, showing a dragon holding grapes emerging from a cave. It is inspired by the numerous caves found on the estate, including La Cueva Negra – an archaeological and anthropological site of great value.
Cauro is 100% Grenache grown on bush vines with little irrigation, this results in small bunches with optimum acidity and moderate alcohol and flavours. 50% destemmed, 50% whole bunch with 10 days maceration in Limestone, before being transferred to Oak to age.
