You sure ask a lot of questions.
I'd certainly agree about the rose being good year round...with the understanding that it's not to be a 'cellared' wine, that is, aged, but one to be maintained short term for consumption.
I don't think it's a mistake that the French, reputed to be natural wine lovers, drink more rose than just about anybody. They know both how delicious it is and how versatile and charming it is with a variety of foods.
The fridge thing? I think that's more about the cork, and absence thereof, than the wine, Bob. The cork is the only thing of concern, because it's the only thing that reacts to the humidity and could allow oxygen exchange.
And as one in love with words, I can safely say I prefer whatever form I most recently used...until I use another form, that is.
I have a little enough mind, but consistency is not one of its hobgoblins. What's fascinating to me about screw cap/screw-cap/screwcap is being able to watch the amazingly rapid evolution of a word form in real time and see how humans modify/change/alter a word unit. Moving almost instantly from "screw cap" to the non-spaced single word "screwcap" by jamming the words together is, god help me, the linguistic version of watching a multigenerational Mendelian experiment (which shows how geeky I am).
