Default I think I messed up my Apfelwien

I aged my first batch of Apfelwien for four months. I bottled it 2 weeks ago. I made the mistake of not repitching yeast. Most bottles are completely flat, not all tho.
Will time fix this problem? Is there anything I can do at this point?

Thanks

One saving grace... when chilled, apfelwein is great uncarbonated.

How much priming sugar did you use? If some are flat and some are carbed, it may just be a matter of the priming sugar not getting completely mixed in before bottling.

I used 3/4 cup of dextrose.
Do I still need to take the precaution to oxygenate it as little a possible, like beer?
I thought I had mixed it well, I have my doubts now.

Edit:
The flat bottles are noticeably sweeter than the carbonated ones.
I'll just have to tell everyone that is how it is suppose to be.
