Overview

Talinay is an ungrafted Pinot Noir vineyard in Limarí situated 12km from the Pacific ocean. Planted in 2006, this site has a gentle western exposure with clay, limestone, and granite soils. Due to its proximity to the sea, this site is protected from high temperatures. While rainfall averages only 100mm per year, Talinay benefits from the moisture-laden breezes and marine layer that prevent the vines from suffering from hydric stress. Out of all the Pinot Noir vineyards in Chile, Reta feels Talinay stands out for its ability to make wines with an achingly delicate balance between fruit and minerality.
