Field Recordings HOCK 2018 White Blend, Central Coast

Field Recordings HOCK 2018 White Blend, Central Coast

The 2018 Hock is my play on a Eldezwicker. My favorite table wines are Alsatian Blends and it’s one of my favorite old world wine regions. This wine is pretty much dry, with just a touch of residual singular in it to balance the acidity. There are no rules for making this wine vintage after vintage- it’s a regional white blend to represent the area and the varieties that are allowed there. This year there is way less Gewurztraminer and a lot more Pinot Gris in it, which gives it a lot more of an aromatic, crisp and refreshing feel.
