Rinse the turkey, taking care to remove any remaining feathers. Preheat the oven to 395 ºF. Use a needle to inject the sweet wine into the turkey breast, legs and thighs to stop them drying out in the oven.

Sprinkle some salt and a little black pepper over the bird and pour the melted butter on top. Arrange on an oven tray with the sliced onion and roast for three hours (cover with tinfoil halfway through).
