2018 Skin Flick, Skin-Fermented White Wine, Sierra Foothills

2018 Skin Flick, Skin-Fermented White Wine, Sierra Foothills

With Skin Flick, we’re taking it back to a time when pleasure was business and business was booming.

Spanning the late-’70s through early-’80s, the Golden Age of Porn was an era of decadent glamour and sexual revolution. During this period, polyester-wearing stars like John Holmes and Seka became erotic icons and films like The Opening of Misty Beethoven were legitimate box office draws. The stars and starlets of the time took great societal risks to help destigmatize sexuality and empower normal people through sexual expression.

Inspired, we wanted to make a white wine with lusty intentions. Skin Flick is a skin-fermented blend of Vermentino, Roussanne, Verdelho, Pinot Gris, and Trousseau Gris from the Sierra Foothills. As the name suggests, we let the white grapes ferment on their skins, just like a red wine, to soak up its orange color and arousing flavors. This wine is sexy, dripping with aromas of orange blossom, banana laffy taffy, and nutty baking spices. On the palate, hints of orange marmalade, honey, and candied lemon peel ride your tongue, with a refreshing climax that will leave you moaning.

In what must be a first in wine, we emblazoned the bottle with a recreated film strip from an actual porno. We worked closely with old school auteur, Dick Lane, to find a hot flick for this label. The film, Wet Wash, is an old 8mm loop from the 1970s depicting a hot car wash encounter turned into an erotic romp. At least that’s what our friend told us.

So, just let me start with the concept behind the label. One of the MAIN reasons I love you guys so much, besides great winemaking is the fact that you always push the envelope in your design and the stories behind your wines. I love it! Dream job to design/work for you guys. This wine is a little more complex than some of the other whites I have tried and I love it. Never cease to amaze me.

I unexpectedly loved this wine! It has a bold unique flavor but not at all heavy.
