Well, I'm not a fan of fruit in good wine. But if you are, why not? I wouldn't do a rind, though- that sounds bitter and not fruity (unlike lemon zest).
I guess I"d take a sample of the wine and see what it's lacking before mucking about with it to much. See if anything you add is an improvement before possibly ruining the whole batch.
