Glengoyne 12 Years Old

The must destined for Alfonso comes from the second press of the pneumatic Wilmes presses so as to obtain slightly more structure and body. Following fermentation to between 11% and 12% alcohol the wine is fortified to 18% alcohol and then enters the Alfonso solera. An empty space of 100 litres is left in the casks so that the wine has a large surface area in contact with the oxygen and therefore undergoes complete oxidisation. Alfonso remains in American oak casks following the traditional Solera system for an average of 8 years.
