Plonk - Plonk (wine) - Netflix

Plonk is a non-specific and derogatory term used primarily in British and Australian English for cheap, low-quality wine. It is believed to come from Australian slang, in reference to blanc (the French word for “white”), before it became naturalised in Britain. Despite the reference to the colour white, the term is not limited to white wine, and can as easily indicate a red wine or rosé. In this context, the phrase has even spawned the title of a novel which evokes the perceived tackiness of the 1980s. In Australia, plonk packaged and sold in a cask or simply in a bag is commonly called “goon”. While not commonly used, the term has also been adopted in other Commonwealth countries such as Canada.
