A very nice bike. Looking at the spec. they are fitted with 47 mm tyres and whilst these will give a compliant ride they will feel draggy compared to 28 mm tyres. FWIW, I bought a similar bike and although bigger tyres are fine for broken roads and bridleways a gravel type bike isn't the best tool for the job.
The cost of these bikes at around£2k.plus does mean that there are plenty of audax/endurance bikes for similar cost.
That said, any bike that fits will do the job.

Thanks Andy, there does seem to be a big push on the gravel style bike, and I have seen a few of them on audaxes, but with road tyres. I think the low gearing  on gravel bikes is what may have appealed to me
