Apricot Saison with Nelson Sauvin

I will be brewing this as my first beer of 2014 and have never used Nelson Sauvin hops.

OG: 1.045
SRM: 3
ibu: 21.5

72% Pilsner
20% 2-row
8% wheat

Apricot Puree at 3days into ferment

Belle Saison or 3711 yeast

.5oz Nelson Sauvin 12.5  60m 21.5
.5oz Nelson Sauvin 12.5  0m 0

Have 2oz of the nelsons but my first cut has only one oz split at 60m and 0m.  Any other suggestions for a hop schedule that will bring out the wine characteristics of the hop.  I don't want to overpower  the apricot contribution.

Cheers

I like to add ~ an oz of Nelson to saison @ 20 min to get some of the grape-type flavor. I use an oz or two @ flameout too.
