Default Vintner's Harvest Wine Base

Anyone play with this in their beers? I got a couple cans tossed in on a craigslist deal and don't make wine. But I was thinking I could toss it into a wheat or some generally lighter recipe after a couple days of primary. But here are my list of questions:

-Do these things expire? And if so, what time frame? This can may be old... like 3-5 years old.
-My understanding is that the contents are basically fruit chunks. Should I puree them first? I might try boiling and mashing to keep sterile, but not sure.
-What kind of yeast should I shoot for? My recipe uses WLP007, but dunno... may not work well with the apricot added in.

Thougts and advice are welcome!
