Pittsboro, NC - I am responding to Tony's enquiry regarding wine pairing with turtle. You do not say what your recipe is, so I am assuming it is turtle soup. If the recipe is calling for sherry or Madeira wine, then I would also serve either with the soup. However, I think wine is a personal taste and fully endorse the "drink the wine you would prefer" approach.
If you prefer white wines, then a chardonnay would go well, although I do not favor the chardonnay wine - but as I say, it is personal. If you would rather go for a red wine, then I have heard that a blended red is a good choice - anything from a cabernet sauvignon/shiraz to a Malbec or a blended merlot. I must admit I would prefer that pairing, but have never had it served with turtle soup.
Hope this helps.
