The heritage meaning of
Rosenthal is 'the valley of
the rose' - a place of beauty
where wines of elegance,
finesse and timelessness
are lovingly crafted.
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 at Rockcliffe was in 2009 and 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.
Luke believes a wine is born in the vineyard, in that its potential has already been predetermined by the time it reaches the winery.
Coby passionately believes that the cool climate of the region has the potential to make exceptional wines that can compete with the best in the world.
