Why do we love it?

The fact that Agios Chronos is a iconic red wine based on Syrah was well known, but now everyone in the world knows it, as it was awarded with the most prestigious medal at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards! In a competition involving 3.155 wines from 34 countries, Agios Chronos 2015 received a staggering score of 97/100 and the medal BEST IN SHOW!

With a Rhone-like philosophy, Mountrichas, that is considered to be the metr of Syrah in greece, mixes Syrah with an 8% Viognier. Then the blend matures for 12 months, in new French oak barrels. The grapes come from the privately owned vineyards of Avantis estate, in Afrati of Mitikas, Evia. With a close attention to the vineyard and the vinification, a rich, complex and elegant wine is produced, capable to excite even the most demanding tastes. Bottled unfiltered and intended for long run!

After this award, Agios Chronos is expected to be the ultimate blockbaster and disappear in the blink of an eye so you should definately hurry up!

For the sweet potato puree
Bake sweet potatoes by wrapping them in baking sheet and baking them at 200 ° C for as long as needed (about 1 hour).

Pierce them with a fork to see if they are cooked, then peel them, mush them up and keep them warm.

Boil the milk and cream along with the leaves of sage over low heat, remove the leaves and add the sweet potatoes. Then season well, taste it and correct the seasoning.

Mix and after you remove it from the fire, add the butter.


For the Roast Beef
Band the fillet with a string or ask the butcher to do it.

Grind in the multi the dried mushrooms, peppercorns, herbs and some salt. Preheat the oven to 200 ° C and in a hot saucepan sauté the fillet on a very high heat.

When it gets a nice color from all sides put it on a roasting grill and below it put a baking pan.
Brush the fillet with butter and spread the mushroom-herb mixture evenly.

Bake the fillet in the lower shelf of the oven for about 50 minutes at 200 ° C, for a medium baking. If you want your fillet well done, continue for about 15 minutes. For rare, cook it for only 35 minutes.

Once you remove the fillet from the oven, wrap it well with foil, leaving it to rest for at least 40 minutes before serving.


For the gravy sauce
Soak the mushrooms in the stock for as long as possible.

In a thick bottom pot, place the butter and once it is melted, add the flour, by stirring continuously until it gets an amber color, then lower the heat to the minimum.

Add the broth after removing the mushrooms and all other ingredients.
Stir continuously until the sauce thickens, taste it and, if necessary, add more salt.

Serve the sliced roast beef, with sweet potato puree and gravy on top.
