Corked? What kind of bottles are you using?
Wine bottles will probably be ok for the portion you want to bottle as still. I'm not sure how corking and dishwasher pasteurization will work, as I have never tried either.
Do not put the portion that you want carbed into wine bottles. They are not designed to hold up to the pressure. Champaign bottles would work, or beer bottles.
