Westend Estate Hilltops Tempranillo 2008

This wine is quite good value for a $15 wine. With fruit sourced from the cool Hilltops region, the wine is purple in colour with evident tears around the rim of the glass. It opens strongly with an attractive nose of pepper, red plums, plum skins and raspberries. The palate is a return to the price point: shortish length, medium to medium plus acidity, light tannins and strawberry flavours. A pleasant wine to drink now. 84-85 points.
