Wine pairing with Turducken

  • v

Mr and Mrs Vinny Clams will soon be hosting their annual Turducken Dinner for 12. Any suggestions on a wonderful wine to perfectly match with the birds will be much appreciated.

  1. My considered suggestion would be a Chardpinoblanc. A chardonnay stuffed in a pinot stuffed in a sauvignon blanc (g).

          I think it depends on the seasoning you're planning to use. I had the good fortune to be invited to a turducken dinner on New Year's eve. The photo below shows the bird(s) right after it was untrussed and the stuffing is spilling out.

          I brought a sumptuous Oregon Pinot Noir to have with the bird. The old wine was great, but with the spice in the Mexican chorizo stuffing, I think the young Shiraz with its peppery spice turned out to be a better match.

            1. Pinot Noir or Pinotage.
