Astica was born in Argentina’s booming Cuyo region, which encompasses the provinces of San Juan, San Luis and Mendoza. Booming because Argentina is the world’s fifth-largest wine producer and much of the production is focused in Cuyo’s Mendoza province. Bordering Chile, the Cuyo region is situated along the eastern side of the Andes mountain chain.
Astica is a source of high-quality, value-priced Argentine wines. The Astica range includes internationally popular varietals such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, as well as Torrontés and Malbec, which are Argentina’s signature white and red grapes.
Vibrant, eye-catching packaging fits with the meaning of Astica, which is an indigenous word for ‘flower’ in Argentina. The wines are produced from hand picked fruit in the Cuyo Region and vinified in a fresh, fruit-forward style.
The Astica Malbec offers a pure, fruit driven example of Argentina’s signature grape. Medium in body with juicy berry flavors and a finish of soft tannins.
