Correcting white balance with a customer profile

I have a Hasselblad digital back that delivers a slight greenish tint out of the camera. The actual color temperature is pretty close, but it's necessary to add something like +60 magenta tint to get the white balance correct. This occurs whether viewed in ACR, Photoshop, Hasselblad Phocus, and MAC Preview.

Using the DNG Profile Editor I had expected that the software would use the neutral patch on the color chart to correct the white balance during the process of generating the profile, but that does not seem to correct the green tint.

Can I even solve the issue I'm trying to address in this manner and if so what might I examine to determine what I am doing incorrectly ?
