2005 V6 TDI white smoke at low revs

Hi everyone,
i am a newbie on the forum and have just bought a 2005 V6 TDI auto which has done about 130k and looks to be in a generally clean condition. when i bought it we drove the car home ( a motorway trip of about 120 miles) and no smoke was evident all the way home. Then we left the car ticking over yesterday after giving the engine a good clean off and no problems, but today on tickover we noticed some white smoke which did seem to smell of diesil, but it did clear mostly after a 5 minute run up the road.
Any ideas to what the culprit could be ?
