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.

This wine f*cks. By that, I mean it's outstanding. I'm not usually a big white wine drinker, but this has a really nice, rich flavor and pairs well with almost any food. If this wine were a person, I'd let it take me to bed.

What a fantastic wine! I’ve always loved skin-contact whites, and Tank gets this one just right. It manages to be both fun and serious at the same time, and it effortlessly stood up to a porn ragu while everyone else was drinking red. Can’t recommend this enough!

Love love love! Have ordered this one 3 times now! It’s a refreshing wine that isn’t too dry and isn’t sweet either. It’s such a good blend with big flavor.

I've been a fan of orange and skin fermented wines for a while. As an avid red drinker, they are the only whites that hold up with complexity. This is awesome and interesting, yet approachable. Great alone or with snacks, all year round.

For a white wine this one is exceptional. The balance of flavors pairs nicely with almost all chicken/fish/vegetable dishes. Would definitely recommend it!

As we see the rise in pretentious wineries (and wine snobs along with it), tank is the reason we continue to come back to the wine life. This bottle perfectly sums up everything good about Tank - lovable, playful, and doesn't take itself too seriously. The wine is *chefs kiss* but beyond that, its the brand that keeps me coming back for more. This wine is like a kiss from a honeysuckle on a brunchy afternoon in hayes valley. It is smooth but bright, not too sweet with a perfect drinkability. Keep it up, TANK.

The name and branding are amazing, but so are the taste and drinkability of this wine. It pairs incredibly well with just about any meal. I've been drinking it chilled and enjoying on my back patio now that the weather is looking up on the east coast. Highly recommend you snag a few bottles yourself!

I love Tank because of wines like Skin Flick! Not because of the labels, although they are great; but, because of the wonderful creativity in the blends and care in the product delivered. I have expanded my tasting experience because of the winery and I thank you for that so much! The skin contact fermentation adds so much complexity to the wine and the color of this wine is so sexy! I love the orange blossom, tangerine, and candied lemon and described in the tasting notes. I sense them all in this wonderful wine. Keep it up!
