peach tree winter survival issues

I am growing an elberta peach tree,and i have an issue with it.The winter die back prevents it from ever producing any fruit,in fact all i have left every spring is a bunch of dead branches,that must be trimmed back to the trunk.Now when i purchased this tree i was told that it is perfectly suited to the growing zone in which i live(in between a zone 4-5) my neighbor grows elberta peaches with out too much die back and a harvest,however a minimal one.is there anything i can do,short of relocating the tree(not possible), to prevent a die back? I was thinking of wrapping the tree in burlap or plastic,to prevent the drying winter winds from dessicating the branches.This tree is located on the edge of my garden with no protection from the north wind.
