A Bottle of Harmony

Abrillante’s name is a portmanteau combining the Spanish words for April and brilliant - a reminder of the European inspiration at work in this bottle. With a bright and energetic style that flows through the label design as well as the wine’s palate, this release welcomes the turn of the seasons.
The packaging is inspired by the multidimensional mosaic art that populates Barcelona. Architect Antoni GaudĂ­ decorated the Spanish city with an imaginative, playful aesthetic that some believe was tied to his craving for harmony. This motivation is much like the concept of balance in winemaking. Both are focused on crafting pieces into consonance for ultimate enjoyment.

Rediscovering the Verdejo Grape

This is Cooper’s Hawk’s first-ever release centered on the Verdejo grape, which hails from the Spanish region of Rueda, where some of the world’s oldest plantings of the variety can be found. Though it’s a grape with historical ties, you’ll find it fits in well with the season’s most dynamic and modern flavors.

The palate is a blend of vibrant citrus and sweet floral notes, perfect for sipping with tender and crisp greens, herbs, and farmer’s market produce. We also love Abrillante with young, soft cheeses made with sheep or goat milk. If left to age a few years, the bottle will develop in texture yet retain a crisp and inviting level of acidity. It’s spring in Spain, in a glass!
