Screw Capped Wine in the Fridge

I've often read in the past that refrigerating white wines in a conventional refrigerator (not a wine refrigerator) would affect the wine's quality after a month or two--for reasons never explained other than perhaps the cork might contract allowing in air (sounded unlikely.) Never really tried or bothered to confirm or deny. Does anyone have experience--and more to the point, now that quality wines have screw caps, how long could a white wine lie in the fridge before some kind of degradation occurs?
