In the realm of ASX consumer stocks, Treasury Wine Estates Ltd (ASX: TWE) has stolen the spotlight, making headlines as its shares surged nearly 3% in early Monday trade. This standout performance in the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) showcases the resilience of this global wine company, even as the broader market is experiencing a 0.6% decline. Treasury Wine shares are currently trading at $12.12, marking a significant jump from their last closing price of $11.77. 
 
For a broader context, the wine industry giant has faced substantial headwinds since 2020 when China imposed punitive tariffs on various Australian exports, including wine. These tariffs were a response to the Australian government's support for an international investigation into the origins of the COVID-19 pandemic. China had previously been Australia's most prominent wine export market. 
 
However, the latest positive development comes after nearly four years of challenges. It appears that ASX TWE shares are enjoying renewed momentum following news that China might be on the brink of removing these punitive tariffs. Over the weekend, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese announced the suspension of the trade dispute between Australia and China with the World Trade Organisation (WTO), as China agreed to an "expedited review" of the wine tariffs. 
 
Prime Minister Albanese's announcement signals optimism, as it could lead to Australian wine reentering the Chinese market without the previously imposed tariffs. He underlined the significance of trade between the two countries, emphasizing that one out of every four Australian jobs is tied to trade, and China stands as their most substantial trading partner in terms of exports. 
 
Treasury Wine promptly welcomed this news in an ASX announcement. The company anticipates that the tariff review may take up to five months. Treasury Wine has expressed readiness to rebuild its business in China if the punitive tariffs are lifted. They have outlined a series of progressive plans for the Chinese market, assuring that these efforts will not come at the expense of long-term growth opportunities in other key markets. 
 
CEO Tim Ford weighed in on the favorable turn of events, expressing his satisfaction with the agreement for an expedited pathway to regain access to the Chinese market. He envisions numerous benefits for consumers, customers, the wine industry, and Treasury Wine itself, emphasizing that "there are only positives to come" from a favorable review. 

While Treasury Wine shares have faced challenges over the past year, their current resilience and the potential removal of punitive tariffs paint an optimistic picture for the company's future.
