rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

The aromas were not what I expected of a Malbec rosé: melon, minerality, orange blossom and a hint of strawberry. Lemongrass and citrus were predominant on the palate. I would pair this rosé with spicy fish tacos or ceviche.
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Astica “means flower in a South American native Indian language” - as indicated on the label. This is a pale salmon rosé redolent of strawberry, violets and honey dew melon. It dances lightly on the palate with a modicum of acidity, tasting of raspberry and melons. This is an alluringly easy drinking offering at a great price. It would pair well with with ceviche or patio foods such as light summer salads.

Carola Price rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Clear and light salmon pink. Nose of roses and strawberries. In the mouth there is some strawberry and orange. This is a light bodied, easy drinking wine and is great for your big pool or backyard parties. You cannot beat the price point for a summer sipper.

Matt Steeves rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

In the heat of the summer sun an ice cold glass of rosé is tough to beat. Astica's value priced Malbec Rosé is a great option for your Tuesday evening impromptu patio session or your well attended summer garden parties as it's refreshing and its low price ($7.95) can't be beat. Serve ice cold and enjoy 2016-2017. Tasted June 2016. 85 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Astica Malbec Rosé 2015, Mendoza, Argentina: A crisp and refreshing Argentine Rosé at an incredibly great price for the taste and quality. Mouth-watering and juicy with notes of field strawberries.
