Default Campden or pectin enzyme?

I have 2 different recipes for blueberry wine. One days add the camp den tablet, wait 12 hours, then add the pectin enzyme, wait 12 hours and add yeast.

The second recipe says add the enzyme first and then add the campden.

Which is right? Does it matter?

In this order:

1. Campden tablets
2. Pectic enzyme
3. Wine yeast

That's what I've heard too, but what effect does the campden have on the pectic enzyme?

It inhibits it a bit. That's why you add the campden 1st, 12hrs later the enzyme, and 12 hrs after that, wine yeast.
