In brief: It's not

It's not contraindicated in hypertension.
It is contraindicated in cases of renal impairment and severe heart/aortic diseases. These conditions may be caused or co-exist with hypertension, but a well controlled hypertension or that w/out kidney/heart disease is not a contraindication in and of itself.
