As chaad mentioned, this is incorrect. Examples of screw capped Australian white wines from the 1970's have aged very well. There are certainly different issues involved in the winery to avoid reductive faults (as a consequence of the low oxygen transfer rates), but once these are addressed, there is no reason to suggest wines under stelvin will not age well.
