Reply to "how ong will a wine last after it has been uncorked??"

Two weeks ago, someone stuck a half full bottle of 2002 Tiefenbrunner Chardonnay into the fridge at our country house without even sticking a cork in the bottle. Last Saturday, after about 10 days, I discovered it and was about to throw it out - but I wanted to see just how bad it had gotten. I was quite shocked to discover that it was still quite drinkable. I never had it in the first place, so I can't make any taste comparison, but it was still fairly fruity with no trace of vinegar. Perhaps my fridge dispenses a layer of argon over the contents... Eek
