Melt 20 g of the butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat until foaming. Add bacon, onion and garlic and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion softens. Transfer to a heatproof bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, walnuts, sage and egg and stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 180°C. Rinse the turkey inside and out under cold running water. Pat dry with paper towel. Fill the cavity with breadcrumb mixture. Tie the legs together with un-waxed white kitchen string. Tuck the wings under. Place turkey, breast-side up, in a roasting pan. Brush with 10 g butter (melted) and cover with foil. Roast in oven, basting every 30 minutes, for 3 1/2 hours or until juices run clear when thigh is pierced with a skewer. Transfer turkey to a platter. Remove string. Cover with foil and set aside for 15 minutes to rest.
Strain the pan juices into a heatproof jug. Melt the remaining butter in the roasting pan over medium heat until foaming. Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until mixture bubbles. Gradually add the pan juices, wine and stock and cook, scraping the pan with a flat-edged wooden spoon to dislodge any bits that have cooked onto the base, for 5-6 minutes or until gravy boils and thickens. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Strain into a heatproof serving jug.
Place the turkey on a large serving platter and serve with gravy.
