I did a little digging and it seems ocean aging isn't a new thing. Several wineries have been experimenting with it since about 2008 or so (I suspect there are more, but the ones I found actually sell ocean aged wine) In fact there is a company that will cellar your wine under the sea. It's one of those "of course" moments when you read about it. Relatively shallow depths (easily accessed by divers) are dark and remain at a constant cellar temperature with no need to artificially maintain temps or humidity levels. Not to mention how cool bottles look when they come up, covered in little sea urchins, etc. As the shipwreck find illustrates, they can sit down there for over a hundred years no problem!
