Can anyone help me out identifying this typeface ?
Thanks in advance,
Even with (many!) better samples, I wasn't able to spot a match. Actually, can't find any font that could match all letters at the same time (main issue is with /G). Talking about /G, reminds me of Gothic Unique WTF. The closest I have is Industry HFF but still some details off: /G, only-top angled terminals...

Your best chance is may be directly asking Moric and if they answer, drop the answer here :)
Inspecting a PDF from Moric reveals that the typeface is called Mexico. I don’t know who designed it, but it is probably custom-made for the brand.
Thanks R. for the PDF link. I compared some letters from Mexico with other fonts and I agree with Ryuk that Industry is the closest.
This is a comparison of K and S, with Industry Demi in red and Mexico in black -- the caps heights of both fonts are standardized at 700:
As usual, great job R and Don! Can't believe I couldn't find this PDF the first time... Will try to find some information on the designer of Mexico.

You're welcome Ryuk. The PDF font is stripped of any designer info. I tried using Google to find info but without success. Perhaps there is an ad agency or design house for Moric?
Could be, don't know. But what I know for sure is many of (at least french) Chateaux and wine labels have their own printing house, designers and typefaces.
Off topic, I like this Mexico font but I really don't think it fits the purpose. Even if I'm far from conservative and like (some touch of) modernism, mainly to rock the place, this one is really not of my taste for such an industry. Feels too much cold/industrial/pharmaceutical for a wine...
