Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE) shares have suffered against Chinese tariffs in recent years. The company has even decided to produce its famous Penfolds wine in the nation to avoid them.

But could Chinese sanctions change alongside Australia’s government?

Newly elected Prime Minister Anthony Albanese apparently won’t be letting such trade bans slide, slamming Chinese tariffs on Australian goods at this week’s Quad meeting.

At the time of writing, the Treasury Wine share price is 1% higher than its previous close.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) is boasting a 0.78% gain.

Let’s take a closer look at what Albanese’s latest comments might mean for Treasury Wine shares.

Albanese slams Chinese tariffs

Treasury Wine shares could be in for a good run if Albanese sticks to his staunch stance against Chinese trade bans.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce slapped Treasury Wine’s products with a massive duty rate back in 2020.

Prior to the hike, China accounted for around 30% of all Treasury Wine’s earnings. Their implementation understandably devastated the company’s bottom line.

Now, Australia’s new Labor Government’s apparent push against such tariffs could bring brighter days for the Treasury Wine shares.

Albanese slammed Chinese trade sanctions this week, saying the country should drop tariffs on Australian goods to improve the relationship between the two nations.

The comments came after Chinese Premier Li Keqiang sent a letter congratulating Albanese on his election win.

“The Chinese side is ready to work with the Australian side … to promote the sound and steady growth of the China-Australia comprehensive strategic partnership,” the letter stated.

But the olive branch wasn’t accepted unconditionally by Australia’s new leader. Speaking to press in Tokyo, Albanese said:

Australia seeks good relations with all countries. But it’s not Australia that’s changed, China has.

It is China that has placed sanctions on Australia. There is no justification for doing that. And that’s why they should be removed.
