White pawn (4)


I believe the answer is:


I believe this is a double definition.

'white' is the first definition.
(type of white wine)

'pawn' is the second definition.
(hock can mean to pawn an item at a pawnbroker's)

(Other definitions for hock that I've seen before include "Hamstring" , "Leg joint on horse e.g." , "Uncle's pledge" , "Dry white wine" , "White wine and horse's joint" .)

I've seen this clue in The Guardian and The Times.
