Winemakers – Coby Ladwig & Luke Eckersley

Traditional Vineyard Practises

Rosenthal Vineyards are situated the Southern tip of Western Australia. The first plantings were in 1997 by the Richings family. The Estate was then purchased and expanded by Dr John Rosenthal. Nowadays the Wines are owned and managed by Coby Ladwig and Luke Eckersley. The chaps have a wealth of knowledge about winemaking with regional champions Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Cabernet.

Luke has gained many accolades since embarking on his winemaking career. Luke’s knowledge and insight into premium boutique vineyards in the Great Southern wine region has given Rosenthal Wines fantastic fruit resources to work with. The first vintage of Rosenthal Wines for Luke & Coby was in 2009. Coby has won numerous awards for wines he has made since then. Coby was recently named as a finalist in the Wine Society’s Young Winemaker of the Year Awards.

The Great Southern Wine region is home to many of Western Australia’s premier wineries. It is the largest wine region in WA and encompasses the five sub regions of Frankland River, Mount Barker, Porongorups, Albany and Denmark.

The Great southern wine region is blessed with a great diversity of climates and soils that enable a vast range of differing grape flavour profiles. We source grapes for our wines from a variety of hand selected vineyards. These vineyards have been identified for their capability to produce particular grape varieties of great varietal quality.

The wines are showing excellent value in the Marker range and the limited release Richings Wines pay tribute to the original owners, and are only made in exceptional years.
