They whisper secrets just as much as they howl in pleasure. Sometimes they respond as subtle as a pulling knife.
Other times they are so greedy that they melt paving stones. Some days they heal and staunch wounds; some nights they are accomplices tearing the flesh of those who get too close. They both drink greedily in one gulp, just as they both gurgle drop by drop, in utter calmness. That’s the way Hot Lips work. They accuse
us of being too madcap and fiery. That may be true for Sunday lovers and for those who drink more outwards than inwards. This story does not have a lock of hair tied to a damsel’s window; instead it has a whole escalation of events around a well-rounded body, blood, redness and tears asking for more.
Hot Lips is a warm wine that shows intensity in the red fruit, which makes it all so irresistible. The palate has
a smooth entry with sleek and elegant tannin. It is a young wine with a tendency for a lot of freshness. Its fruity harmony makes it an attractive wine on the nose and greedy mouth.
Hot Lips is daringly paired with traditional dishes, ones without intense spicy flavours.
