bottling cider

When bottling my cider to get a sweeter taste and a little bit of fizz what's the best way.
Also once bottled whats the shelf life? Appox.
Does it mature well with age?

Sweeten with sugar before bottling. Pasteurize after bottling.
Your cider needs to be mature before you bottle.

Have a look at this excellent article.
