How to display variant price ranges prior to a variant selection?

I am trying to make the product page in my "Minimal" theme to display the variant price range prior to variant selection in conjunction with the "get customers to choose an option" behavior I've already implemented. This is working, there is no default variant selection upon initial page loading. HOWEVER, the theme is initially displaying the first variant's price despite no variant actually being selected. Once a variant IS selected, the price changes correctly.

How can I have the product page display a min-max variant price range prior to a variant being selected with the drop-downs? This tweak on collection pages is popular but I couldn't find a similar code solution to implement this on product pages - in my case for the 12.5.1 version of "Minimal"

Thanks for any guidance!
