Clonakilla Hilltops Shiraz 2009

Clonakilla’s 2009 Hilltops shiraz is very fruity.  It has an aroma of plum skins, fresh fruit and, almost, apricot kernels.  On the palate, there is very sweet fruit, some length and a touch sultana/raisin like taste on the finish.  The wine is suitable for drinking now.  85 points.

Would I buy it having tasted it? A bit 50:50.
