This is a hard one... only because adagio doesnt really sell a wuyi. The wuyi ensemble is probably your best bet, most of the rest of the oolongs are greener oolongs. I remember trying a variety of the oolongs from adagio and a few of them tasted more like a darjeeling to me.

+1 Adagio doesn't have a good Wuyi, everything is lighter. That said Ali Shan and Pouchong are good light oolongs.

From what I remember, the Wuyi Ensemble is pretty close. As I recall, they are both fairly standard Wuyi yancha, though I have not done a side-by-side.

"Wu Yi Oolong" from the european site was really good. Too bad it was all out when my gaiwan arrived, it bet it would've been even better.
