Cheap shiraz from Tesco, LIDL, ALDI would be the goto cooking wine in our household for dishes like Beef bourguignon.

LIDL and ALDI usually sell a mulled wine (Gluhwein) this time of year, might be worth trying for a relative comparison.
An old boards thread here on the subject might have some recipe pointers:
