Why do we love it?

The coveted King of the Mountains, Le Roi des Montagnes Syrah has just been released and you might be able to make some bottles yours now.
We know how much you were looking forward to it. And it’s here. And like every year, it will sell out in a heartbeat.

The King of the Mountain aka Le Roi des Montagnes is here and it’s worth its crown’s weight in gold!
Yiannis Papargyriou has repeatedly demonstrated that he knows how to take risks. The overripe harvest gives its charismas. A rich body that you almost chew, tremendous fruit concentration and high alcohol. On the other hand, those charismas demand Papargyriou's mastery in handling, so that elegance and balance are retained. The French variety is cultivated at an altitude of 850m in the area of Sofiana, Corinthia and by delaying harvest, the grapes are collected overripe resulting in a staggering concentration of their almost wrinkled berries. It matured for 18 months in oak French barrels and a few more in the bottle.

Le Roi des Montagnes Syrah by Papargyriou Winery is the wine you want to drink forever and ever, but all good things come to an end very soon, so hurry up!

LE ROI DES MONTAGNES SYRAH 2018 - PAPARGYRIOU ESTATE

PAIR IT

with rich meat dishes with red sauces, dishes with truffles and mushrooms or yellow aged cheeses.

Roast beef with spices and red wine sauce

  • 2 tbsps. of peppercorns
  • 2 tbsps. of black or white mustard seeds
  • 2 tbsps. of fennel seeds
  • 1.5 kilos of beef fillet
  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp of wholegrain or English (preferably gluten-free) mustard
  • 3 coarsely chopped red onions along with the peels
  • A pinch of thyme

For the sauce:

 

  • 2 tbsps extra virgin olive oil
  • 1.5 with 2 tsps of corn flour
  • 2 beef stock cubes
  • 3-4 tbsp red currant jelly
  • 400ml red wine

Two days ago, grind the pepper and the mustard and fennel seeds using a mortar. Brush the fillet with mustard and then roll it to freshly ground pepper. Cover with cling film and place it in the fridge.

Two hours before you start cooking, take the meat out of the refrigerator to reach room temperature.

Preheat the oven to 180C. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan and cook the meat until it gets a beautiful brown color. Use onions in the casserole as the base and place the meat on top of them. Bake for 20 minutes for medium or 35 minutes for a well-done beef.

Remove the beef from the casserole and place it on a platter covered with foil for 30 minutes to keep it warm. Put the casserole on the heat and along with the onions and meat juices, add the corn flour and the beef stock cubes. Stir the jelly and gradually pour the wine while stirring. Simmer until the liquid is reduced. Strain the sauce and remove the onions. Slice the beef, flavor it with thyme and serve with the red wine sauce.
